A great stop when wandering through Retiro park. There are modern art exhibits inside and a beautiful view out front on the pond. It was a nice place to sit and relax for a moment and take in the scenery.

The crystal palace is a must-see in Madrid's Retiro Park. Once a greenhouse, it is now part of a museum and holds temporary exhibitions. Its impressive facade forms a beautiful landscape.

The pretty Palacio de Cristal is located in the huge Retiro Park. There was nothing on display there at the time we were but it would have to be a great venue.

The Palacio de Cristal is one of the most beautiful attractions in Madrid. The small lake adds some magical and peaceful time to the passers-by.

We did not have the opportunity to go inside. However, just walking around the outside was nice. The facility and grounds are beautiful. Interesting details on the structure. Sitting my the pond and watching the ducks, turtles, and fish was peaceful. Great place for pictures....More

If you go to Madrid you HAVE to visit Retiro Park, and there you have to visit the palace. It is much nicer from the outside than inside but incredibly magical!!
