Parque del Retiro y Paseo del Prado
We meet near Atocha station — one of the most important Madrid place. From there we head towards the most beautiful parks of the world. We enter the door near an ancient astronomic observatory. Very close to it there is a unique statue dedicated to one demon. And this is just the beginning! We are to go into the garden looking for a small pond near the Crystal Palace and, perhaps, today there may be an interesting exhibition. In front of the palace we will see trees growing in the water — it is Velázquez Palace. From there we will observe the egiptian fountain near the King Algonso XII monument. There we may have rest, drink something fresh and watch the street artists.
Then we will get acquianted with the statues of kings. These pieces of art were brought from the palace and now are pleasing our eyes on the fresh air. From there we will walk to the most ancient tree in Madrid.
On the street right away we will encounter with the Alcalá door, the symbol of Madrid beloved by all madrileños. After that we will head towards the Plaza de Cibeles in order to see the new magnificent municipality, The Bank of Spain and The Servantes Institute. This place is extremelly vivid!
We will continue our trip in Prado avenue where the fountains with mythological characters are situated and you will meet statues of Neptune, Apolo and Cibeles.
The three most famous Spanish museums are located in this area as well as La Bolsa — the most luxurious hotel you have ever seen. Beautiful gardens and other places will raise your spirits and bring to the clouds!
In the end of this extraordinary street we will come bac to the place of our meeting — to the Atocha station.
