Admire the impressive views of Madrid from the unique viewpoint and visit one of the most important corners of the capital with this Retiro Park & Cibeles Palace Observatory Tour.

Retiro Park & Cibeles Palace Observatory Tour

At 12 pm we'll meet at the Palacio de Cibeles entrance, the former Telecommunications Palace and Madrid's current City Hall. Our tour will begin in front of this majestic building that will reveal two of the Spanish capital's most precious treasures.

As soon as you step inside the Cibeles Palace, constructed in 1919 in what at that time belonged to the Buen Retiro Park gardens, you'll understand its importance thanks to the building's innovative architecture.

We'll also go up to the viewpoint, to see some of the best views of the city. The Gran Vía, the Glass Gallery dome, the Telefónica building, the España building... Madrid at your feet!

Following on, we'll go to the Retiro Park, which holds over 400 years of history and boasts being the most important green area in Madrid. We'll walk through the park discovering its abundant past, closely linked to the Count-Duke of Olivares. 

During the tour through the Retiro, we'll admire the beautiful lake, the Galapagos Fountain, the Fallen Angel and the Glass Palace, which will become your favourite corner of the city!

The tour will end at 2:30 pm in the Retiro Park.
