The Palacio de Cristal is a glass and metal structure located in Madrid's Buen Retiro Park. It was built in 1887 to exhibit flora and fauna from the Philippines. It's a tribute to the romanticism in Madrid.
The Palacio de Cristal is made almost entirely of glass set in an iron framework on a brick base, which is decorated with ceramic.
It's located in a characteristic 18th century palace in the heart of the city, housing Romanticism exhibits, including important pieces by the leading artist of the time.
The musem captures the essence of Madrid's 19th century middle-class life through its furniture, pianos, and other household objects.
In the museum we can find pieces made by important romanticism's artist, as "Lectura de Zorrilla en el estudio del pintor". In this painting are illustrated Espronceda and Duque de Rivas. We can find six oil painting "Effigies Amicorum" made boy Madrazo.
