If you Travel to…

Madrid, Spain you should definitely check out Palacio de Cristal! This majestical landmark was built in 1887 and is mostly made out of glass and metal. It was originally a greenhouse as it is located in Buen Retiro Park, but it is now used to display art for tourism purposes. The palace was designed by architect Ricardo Velázquez Bosco who also had a part in restoring the famous Alhambra and Mezquita landmarks in Southern Spain! Interestingly enough it was modelled after London’s Crystal Palace, which unfortunately was destroyed by fire in 1936. If you love nature, art, history and beautiful architecture this palace is definitely a must see!
