The Secret Place in Madrid No One Told You About – Shhhh!

I’m sure by now you already know I love Spain. Yes, I can’t deny! The more I travel the more I like it — you could say I’m addicted to it! This is why I have moved to Madrid, one of the most open and welcoming cities I have ever been to.



It’s funny, I moved here and it was only by accident that I bumped into what has become my favorite spot. I was lost so I decided to take a shortcut and, there it was!



Can you guess it? EL RETIRO!

Now, I know you know El Retiro very well. This is no secret. Still, people see the pond and the Crystal palace — both wonderful sights — but forget to check the most incredibly nice and relaxing place of all: the Jardines de Cecilio Rodriguez!



There is something whimsical about this garden, but I’m not going to tell you what it is — this is the secret.




For this look, I wanted a winter-ish color palette that brings the European essence of Madrid back to life. I feel that Gucci’s Alessandro Michele is the best exponent of this trend so far. He rightly said, “I’m trying to follow my rules, not fashion rules.”


What I Wore

Beret: Zara

Pair of earrings: Peora

Handbag: Carolina Herrera

Top: Zara

Pants: Zara

Pair of shoes: Zara

Pair of stockings: Primark

Until next time

  11. Curious to hear more about moving to Madrid. I have thought of doing the same. Worry about the heat and the food and an insularity (people friendly to outsiders, but we’re still outsiders. Otherwise, I love the city! Where did you move from? Native Spanish speaker? Best, William Eaton,
