    Crystal Palace

    by MichaelFalk1969 Updated May 15, 2014

    The glass- and metal structure Palacio Cristal was built in 1887 as a greenhouse, inspired by the (demolished) Crystal Palace in London.

    It is located in the Retiro Parc of Madrid, opposite of an artifical lake, and of the most striking architectural features of the Parc.

    The Palacio de Cristal (Crystal Palace) is in the Retiro Park, and it offers temporary exhibitions. It is part of the Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía (or just Museo Reina Sofía), so, the website is the same, but you have to look for Exposiciones/Exhibitions.
