A highlight of the Buen Retiro is the haunting Statue of the Fallen Angel. Sculpted by Ricardo Bellver in 1878, the fountain statue shows Satan being cast out of heaven and stands, spookily enough, at exactly 2,185 feet — or 666 meters — above sea level.
Great tour especially thanks to our guide Luis David. Apart from his great knowledge in history, he also provided very interesting stories and legends about Retiro. No rush, pleasant pace. Being this week El Bosco exposition in Prado, skip the line was great advantage.
We were only tree for this tour. Our gide did great job. His way of explaining history and historical facts is fantastic. It was really interactive tour through the park. I highly recommend this tour if you like walking.
We had a very good time with this tour. We were late for the appointed time, since our son threw up just before we were going to lead from a hotel. But the guide was waiting for us. We felt his love of the city.
We enjoyed this tour so very much. Our tour guide was so knowledgeable and fun and really made the day worth while. We enjoyed NOT having a guide in the actual museum. Everyone enjoyed looking at different art pieces and liked that we were not rushed or in a group setting. We used Viator for many of our tours in Spain and will recommend them to anyone taking this trip.
Loved this tour! Very informative and friendly guide! Although the weather wasn't wonderful this day, our tour guide was proud and very enthusiastic about this lovely park. I would highly recommend this tour.
