About Park

    A green garden in the center of Madrid

    It also provides culture, entertainment and sports for locals and visitors. Among the most important architectural and historical elements are: Estanque Grande which offers many activities such as rowing boats, boats and solar classrooms, the municipal rowing school for children and young people aged 7 to 17, Palacio de Velázquez and Palacio de Cristal, Currently as exhibition halls.

    The Palacio de Cristal, the romantic suite created to accommodate the display of exotic plants at the Philippine Exposition in 1887, is one of the prime examples of Spain's iron architecture.

    In addition, El Retiro features sculptures and notable sources such as the monument to Alfonso XII, a project by architect José Grasés Riera, which this spring opens a view to enjoy beautiful views of the city, or the reserved Fernando VII, at the corner of the streets of Udonnell and Mendez Bellayo. The latter includes the fisherman's house, the artificial mountains, and the house of smugglers (now Florida Retiro, a modern space for entertainment and hospitality that for years has housed the former Florida Park Club), giving it a romantic atmosphere.

    They also confirm the statue of the fallen angel. The only statue in the world that represents Satan, the Gallapagos Fountain, which celebrates the birth of Isabel II, the stunning San Bellayo and San Isidoro Sanctuary, the Bosque del Ricuardo and the Puppet Theater, is a unique theater in Europe with stable programming every weekend.

    For walking, exercise ... and much more

    El Retiro is one of the favorite places for tourists and home, for hiking and exercise, especially running and skiing. If you go with the children, you can enjoy one of the many play areas in the garden.

    La Chopera Municipal Sports Center, the Public Library of the Municipality Eugenio Trías and Casa de Vacas Cultural Center are other places to be considered during this tour of Retiro. If you are an ardent botanist, do not miss visiting ahuehuete, perhaps the oldest tree in Madrid.
