This park, which means “Park of the Pleasant Retreat”, is one of the largest parks in the city of Madrid in Spain. The park, belonging to the Spanish monarchy until the end of the 19th century, was opened to the public after this date. The Fallen Angel statue is said to be the only sculpture devoted to the devil on Earth, near the Rose Garden. The park is also home to the 400-year-old Mexican conifer tree (ahuehuete), Madrid’s oldest tree.
