Description

This is a tour that shows the history of El Retiro, it began as a palace for the court of Philip IV until it became a public park in the 20th century. It is the lung of the city, our 'central park', full of history, curiosities, anecdotes, legends, inescapable buildings and the magic that surrounds the park you can feel on this tour. It is true that people only know the pond and the boats, but in reality there are many secrets that the park keeps and if you want you can see them with me. Do you want to see the evolution it has had since its origins? Sign up and find out with me! We will start on the Fernán Núñez promenade seeing the enigmatic statue of the Fallen Angel, then we will see the remains of the old ceramics factory, the old menagerie, statues, the large pond, mysterious gardens and we will end in the beautiful Parterre Garden that hides the oldest tree in Madrid! For the tour to go out, at least 5 people are necessary. If you bring a pet, please let us know so we know. This tour includes civil liability insurance and additional explanation material. This tour ends in the Jardín del Parterre (in front of the Casón del Buen Retiro).
