Retiro's crystal palace...


The Madrid crystal palace raises in the Retiro park in the center of Madrid, built in the 1887 for the islas Filipinas exposition. Inspirated, in the Paxton’s glass house in Chatsworth (1836), is now one of the ex-libris of the park, and Madrid… pity we have to wait till spring to see it open…
