  Glass Palace
by Urzu

This building is inside the Retiro Park, but because to me it's special, I thought it should have it's separat place here! The Glass Palace was built in the late 19th Century for the exhibition of exotic plants that came to Spain from the Ph¡lippines. Nowadays the Palace is not a greenhouse, but instead it holds temporary exhibitions that change every once in a while. I've been to a few of them and they are very interesting, so don't miss it!
