Enjoy a lovely stroll through Retiro Park, the largest park in Madrid. Once home to the Habsburg royal palace, then later a military fortress housing Napoleon’s troops and now a wonderful green oasis in the centre of the city. See the stunning Palacio de Cristal, a conservatory made almost entirely of glass, and a beautiful collection of gardens, galleries and even a tranquil lake. A treasured meeting and relaxing place for locals, Retiro park has many impressive statues and sculptures dotted through its gardens, with the most famous being the statue of the fallen angel, Lucifer, sitting at six hundred and sixty six metres above sea level.

Federico was wonderful, so informed, and quite entertaining. I couldn't stay for the entire program so I was in and out. My office is just down the hall from the room where people were gathered watching and every now and then I could hear him singing and making funny noises indicating him pointing to something of interest. It was quite hilarious and I could hear my audience laughing. The feedback was very positive!
Please extend our thanks for a great tour and a job well done!
