Доп. время на тренинг
During 2 hours on segway in the Heart of Madrid you will visit not only the historical city center with its narrow streets, its markets and famous squares such as Plaza Mayor or Puerta del Sol but also you will touch the huge park of Retiro, the Royal Palace or the Almudena Cathedral.
The group will traverse the old Madrid, the Literature Quarter, the vertical garden of Caixa Forum and the Art Promenade with its Prado Museum until getting to Retiro Park. The tour will glide through its wide avenues where we will have the chance of enjoying riding a real segway in an open space. The tour will stop at the most representative monuments: the fallen angel statue, the rose garden, the cristal palace and the big lake. Leaving the park, we will meet the Alcalá Gate and follow the street Alcalá towards the city centre and Puerta del Sol. We will have passed by the magnificent Cibeles Palace, Bank of Spain, building Metrópolis and Calatrava chuch. We will then continue through one of the most lively streets of town – Arenal Street- until meeting the queen Isabel II in the Opera Square. The tour will head to the Royal Palace & the Orient Square, place where we can take advantage to take a great picture, to finish visiting the interesting Almudena Cathedral.
The Buen Retiro Park is a large and popular 1.4 km2 (350 acres) park at the edge of the city centre, very close to the Puerta de Alcalá and not far from the Prado Museum. A magnificent park, filled with beautiful sculpture and monuments, galleries, a peaceful lake and host to a variety of events, it is one of Madrid’s premier attractions. The park is entirely surrounded by the present-day city.
In 1505, at the time of Isabella I (r. 1474–1504) the Jeronimos monastery was moved from an unsuitable location elsewhere to the present site of San Jeronimo el Real Church, and a new monastery built in Isabelline Gothic style. The royal family had a retreat built as part of the church. King Philip II (r. 1556–1598) moved the Spanish court to Madrid in 1561. Philip had the Retiro enlarged by his architect Juan Bautista de Toledo, and formal avenues of trees were laid out.
