Crystal Palace in Retiro Park - day
The Crystal Palace (Palacio de Cristal) is a beautiful glass building located in Retiro Park . Constructed for a 19th Century Exhibition (1887) dedicated to the Phillipines, the Palaco de Cristal was closely modelled on London's Crystal Palace.
 
Palacio de Cristal was designed by Ricardo Velazquez Bosco. It stands in the heart of the Retiro Park, reflecting charismatically in a small lake inhabited by ducks, grey lag geese, and black swans. It forms one of Madrid's most enduring bucolic images. Exhibitions of modern art are regularly held inside the building which ranges from surrealistic metal sculptures to aviary shows.
 
Location:
Parque Del Retiro (Retreat Park) in Madrid, Spain
