Starting a New Year at (MAD)...


At the end of the “Paseo del Parterre” in the Retiro Park you can find the beautiful Felipe IV door, it’s a beautiful baroque style monument, work of Melchor buenas, it dates from 1680, even if it was translated to it’s actual position only in 1922.

Right in front the “Casón del Buen Retiro” build in 1637 by Alonso Carbonell as dance room of the Buen Retiro Palace actually part of the Prado Museum.
