Feel yourself the hero of the movie about the 19th century swining in a rocking chair in the palace.
How to sit in a rocking-chair in the Crystal Palace in Madrid
Visit the Crystal Palace by the lake, where is the rocking chairamong among the magnificent noble furniture. Swing in it, like a hero from a movie of the 19th century, who came to visit the secular party in the palace.

How to do?

1. You'll find the palace right in the center of the Retiro Park at Independence Square, 4. It's easy to get lost in the vast territory of the park, better buy a guide at the entrance.
2. Inside the palace, there is a rocking chair - take a seat in it to take a break from your walk.
3. Walk around the palace, feed the floating swans and inhale the scent of the cypress grove.
