Located in the Retiro Park, the Monumento a Alfonso XII was designed by Jose Grases Riera who won a national contest held for the design of the monument. After the death of Jose Grases Riera , the project was undertaken by Teodoro Anasagasti who kept the original design  and constructed the monument in Marble and Bronze.

Today the monument echoes the grandeur of the park itself and highlights the equestrian statue of King Alfonso XII cast in Bronze that was created by Benlliure in 1904.

  • Very good place to stroll enjoying its monuments and lie under the shade. 😍 You can rent a boat 🚤 and cross the small lake or maybe drink something in a bar near the lake. 🍹

  • Wonderful area to sit and watch the boating on the lake. The monument is highly impressive and ornate. Located in a marvellous park.

  • Just passing by during my after noon walk around the park. Very stand out from far away.

  • Such a pretty lake and piece of architecture would definitely recommend hiring a boat for just 6 euros per boat!!

  • Very nice place to sit and relax. Lights went out at 22.45.
