Spain: Madrid, Palacio de Cristal del Retiro

Madrid’s Crystal Palace from the outside

The Palacio de Cristal (“Crystal Palace”) is a garden conservatory located centrally in Madrid’s Buen Retiro Park. It was built in 1887. Astute tourists undoubtedly research all of the places to see in Madrid and head to the Crystal Palace as part of their tour plan.

We are not in the “astute” group and happened on the Palacio de Cristal while walking our dog Gigi. It was a good thing for us that we happened to be traveling with our dog. Walking the dog led us to see something that we might have otherwise missed. But it wasn’t as good for Gigi: She had to wait outside while we went inside to see the Crystal Palace.


We happened upon Madrid’s Crystal Palace in November of 2017.
