Guided Tour of the Retiro Park 2 hoursSKU: 35870
Description of Guided Tour of the Retiro Park 2 hoursDid you know that Retiro Park was built in the 17th century by Phillip IV who envisioned it as an exclusive area known as Casa de Austria. The area had been well maintained throughout the years and was in good shape until the Independence War when it suffered terrible damage due to it being used as a fortress by the French forces.
In 1868 it was declared as part of the public heritage and was opened to the public. This decision benefited it greatly and it continued to develop into what is today known as one of Madrid's "green lungs".
Retiro is also seen as an important attraction point, both for locals and tourists. It is compared to an open-air museum due to the generous amounts of activity going on inside its walls: it is a meeting point for locals, where they can do sports and socialize.
Our desire is to share the beauty of this beautiful landmark with you and we would like to take you on a charming trip through this natural wonder. We could just list all the attractions in the park, but we believe that it's best if you seem them with your own eyes.
When you call to make the reservation, tell us if you are 4 or more people in the group because you can benefit from the tour being private just for you.
Join us on this tour of the "Spanish version of Central Park" and you will see for yourself why people enjoy it more and more.
