Explore Madrid in the most complete segway tour

During 2 hours on Segway in the heart of Madrid, you will visit, not only the historical city centre with its narrow streets, its markets and famous squares such as Plaza Mayor or Puerta del Sol, but also explore the huge park of Retiro, the Royal Palace, or the Almudena Cathedral.
The group will traverse the old Madrid, to arrive to the magnificent Cibeles Palace, Bank of Spain, the Metropolis building, follow the street Alcalá, and meet the Alcalá Gate. Than the tour will glide through the wide avenues of the Retiro Park, where we will have the chance of enjoying riding a 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. To return we will visit the vertical garden of Caixa Forum, and the Art Promenade with the Prado Museum, and finally ride through the Literature Quarter, towards Puerta del Sol. The tour will finally head to the Royal Palace, and the interesting Almudena Cathedral, where we can take a great picture to finish the visit.

Location

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.

History of the park and palace

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.
