    It is the best statue of a horse in co that there is in Madrid, is from the mid 17th and intervened to 4 geniuses of sculpture, painting and science, in this ultimo last had to see Galileo Galilei to bring the settlement of the balance of the horse of Felipe IV. Initially was in a courtyard of the Palace of the Buen Retiro, until in November 1844 he moved to the Plaza de Oriente, which presides over the square... The pedestal commissioned by Isabel II is completed with different images.

    This really is just another monument so not a 'must see', however it is situated right in front of the palace and within a nice garden so it is a pleasant setting.  more »

  • Nice statue located in a park. Make sure to explore the area and visit the royal palace
  • Magnificent statue just before the palace. Surrounded by nice gardens
  • The statue of a King who is said to be responsible for the decline of Spain. However he managed to get a statue who glorifies him as a Great King therefore I give him 5 stars!!
  • cool~
  • Spectacular sculpture, architectural design prodigy

Where to stay in Madrid

The Spanish capital is known for its array of distinct neighborhoods each with its own appeal. An affordable and easy-to-navigate metro system, which makes it is easy to get around Madrid gives you more flexibility in choosing where to stay. Perhaps the most popular choice is Puerta del Sol, the heart of the city center and one of the main tourist attractions with its numerous shops, affordable hotels, and restaurants. Close by is Gran Via street, one of the city's main arteries, which is also home to a number of hotels. A short walk from here is Plaza España where the city's most iconic landmarks lie, including the Royal Palace and the Teatro Royal. For somthing outside the traditional tourist areas, consider staying in La Latina or Malasaña, two bohemian neighborhoods that offer a wide range of eclectic shops, quaint cafes, and lively bars.
