Retiro, near the Atocha Station and not far from Centro, is a quiet place to live, with good parking. The main attraction is the vast Retiro Park near the Prado museum, which has a boating lake and the Palacio de Cristal on its grounds. The Buen Retiro palace with its floral gardens is another attraction. There are 19th-century homes and apartment buildings six to seven stories high bordering the park. However, there are rather few shops.
