Not only are there many tourists, but it is also a good place for Madrid citizens to enjoy their time. There is a man-made lake. The magnificent statue on the East Bank of the lake is Alfonso's 12th century monument. The two groups of statues are the army image carved by Jos Montserrat (north side) and the Navy image carved by Mateo Inurrria (south side). It's also great to sit and watch the boating on the lake.
Not very big bronze statue, what is written on the bronze plate below can hardly be understood.
At noon, I had lunch in the Shunfeng Restaurant. After lunch, I went to visit the Palace of Spain. Located on the left bank of the Manzanares River, the Spanish Palace was built in 1738 and completed in 1764. It is the third largest palace in Europe and one of the most complete and exquisite palaces in the world. The palace looks like the Louvre in France, while the interior decoration is Italian style, magnificent and luxurious. There are innumerable gold and silver utensils and paintings, porcelain, tapestries and other royal articles in the palace. There are more than 3,000 rooms in the palace, the most famous of which are Carlos III's bedroom, Mirror Hall and Alfonso XII's favorite luxury restaurant. Now the Spanish palace has been opened as a museum for visitors.
