Info on the glasshouse (wiki):

The Palacio de Cristal ("Glass Palace") is a conservatory located in Madrid's Buen Retiro Park. It was built in 1887 on the occasion of the Exposition of the Philippines, held in the same year, then a Spanish colonial possession.

The Palacio de Cristal, in the shape of a Greek cross, is made almost entirely of glass set in an iron framework on a brick base, which is decorated with ceramics. Its cupola makes the structure over 22 metres high.

The cast-iron frame was manufactured in Bilbao. The structure was designed in a way that would allow it to be re-erected on another site. However, the building has remained on the original site, next to a lake, and has been restored to its original appearance. It is no longer used as a greenhouse, and is currently used for art exhibits.

The Crystal Palace belongs to the Reina Sofía Museum, and is one of its exposition centres.

Hi Deanna, I visited Retiro with a friend on one of the free days during weekends to relax from the studies. Years later, I am so happy that my curiosity lead me to various places.
