Explore the Retiro Park and Cibeles Palace

More than 400 years old, the Retiro Park is the most important green area in Madrid and your visit to the Spanish capital will not be complete without a walk through this wonderful green lung located in the center of the city. You will start the walking tour with a visit to the Cibeles Palace. This beautiful building, located at the intersection of Paseo del Prado and Calle Alcalá, was built in what at that time were the Buen Retiro Gardens. You will enter with the guide and after getting to know the interior, from its rooftop you will enjoy an incredible view of the Gran Vía. You will not forget the image of Madrid that you will have from this point! Then you will go up Alcalá Street to enter Retiro Park. In the 17th century, the Count-Duke of Olivares designed a space for the recreation of the king and his court, giving rise to the Jardines del Buen Retiro. In 1868 it became a municipal park and since then elements have been added to its heritage. The guide will show you and explain the historical context behind the park’s most outstanding attractions. You can marvel at the size of the “Big Pond”, be dazzled by the beauty of the “Crystal Palace”, contemplate the “Fountain of the Galapagos”, or discover the legend of the statue of the “Fallen Angel”; At the end of the tour, you can stay in the park as it has many corners where you can sit down to rest and take a break from the “stress” of the city.
