Take a tour of Retiro Park in Madrid, Spain – part of the World’s Greatest Attractions travel video series by GeoBeats. It is the main park of Madrid, Spain, and before 1868, only royalty could enjoy it. Certainly parts of the park, like the Crystal Palace, are fit for a king. This amazing glass building was once a greenhouse, but now frequently features temporary exhibitions. The well-groomed and maintained gardens make this park a peaceful and lovely place to enjoy. Retiro Park is home to other grand ornamented buildings as well. There are also a number of fountains and statues. Crowning Retiro Park is a glorious statue of Alfonso the twelfth, former King of Spain.
