Monumental, gracieux, imposant...
okt. 2021
J'ai résumé, ce monument, en plus d'en imposer en bordure du lac artificiel, est admirablement bien entretenu et particulièrement esthétique

Molto spettacolare
aug. 2021
E' un monumento altamente spettacolare sul laghetto nel parco.

Il colonnato, le statue con i leoni danno un grande aspetto di regalità ed imponenza.
Le foto vengono inoltre molto bene, sia da lontano che nei vari scorci che si possono cogliere passando vicino al monumento.

Veramente bello, simbolo della Madrid regale.

Visita clave en El Retiro
aug. 2021
Belleza, historia y aemonía arquitectónica se integran en este magnífico monumento de la espectacular ciudad de Madrid. El adicional paseo en barca por el estanque permite la apreciación del monumento desde distintas perspectivas y, caminando por detrás y por el centro del mismo se pueden apreciar los distintos niveles del armónico conjunto histórico-artístico. Un espectáculo para mente, cuerpo y alma que merece la pena visitar.

El monumento supera al personaje
jul. 2021
Frente al lago, siempre concurrido, tremendamente fotogénico sobre todo al atardecer, el monumento y su entorno superan con creces el papel histórico del rey homenajeado.

A spectacular monument in Retiro Park. There is a very nice lake with boats in front of it. As well as many restaurants around it.

Après-midi agréable
mar. 2021
S'assoir sur ce monument pour profiter de l'après-midi est très agréable.
Loin des pelouses bondées par temps ensoleillé, le monument est agréable pour s'assoir et profiter de la météo clémente.
Un groupe de musicien est venu jouer, et ce fut très agréable. Le monument surplombe le bassin du parc.

decanso despues de un día movido
sep. 2020
Es un hermoso paseo al aire libre, para hacer ejercicio, o solo caminar sin rumbo y toparse con este monumento, el lago , el palacio decristal, y decansar comiendo algo en un barcito pintoresco que hay en su interior.

Majestuoso monumento
des. 2020 • Familie
Desde fuera se puede ver este majestuoso monumento presidiendo el estanque grande de El Retiro. Merece la pena contemplar desde sus escalinatas el atardecer cayendo el sol sobre Madrid o mirar a la ciudad desde las columnas que lo componen. Es un lugar único para la tranquilidad.

Existe un mirador justo debajo de la estatua ecuestre de Alfonso XII desde donde ver unas vistas de todo Madrid . Para ello, hay que reservar previamente desde la página patrimonio.es

Civil Wars, A Peace-Maker King & An Untimely Death
feb. 2020
If you visit Retiro Park, don’t miss this monument which takes centre stage on the beautiful lake. It’s the loveliest part of the park and this is the biggest and most striking monument in a park that is definitely not short of monuments, sculptures and fountains.
The bronze and marble structure is over 30 metres high and is topped with a bronze statue of King Alfonso XII, in full military dress on horse-back.
It’s a full-on image of the idealised soldier-king.
He is flanked by a semi-circular colonnade and the frieze running along the top of the columns has the coats of arms of each Spanish province. Stairs down to the lake are flanked by lions and mermaids and the base is surrounded by figures symbolising Peace, Freedom and Progress, the Spanish Army and Navy, Sciences and Industry and Agriculture.
Although there are a lot of men on horseback statues throughout Madrid, there is a tragic but lovely story attached to this one. Alfonso XII was a much-loved king, who was fondly known as El Pacificador (Peacemaker) and reigned from 1874 to 1885. To be fair, this was more to do with the fact that he was male, rather than any special talents for peace-making. Spain had been through 3 civil wars in the 1800s. The Carlistas Wars had been largely caused by competing dynastic claims and the birth of a male heir meant that the Spanish throne was safe from the immediate danger so there was a lot invested in this young boy-king.
What I liked most about his story is that, although he was only 17 when he came to the throne, he went out of his way to visit the sick and homeless. Disgusted by the government neglect that he saw, he went against his Prime Minister’s advice and personally visited districts that were suffering cholera epidemics. He travelled to areas hit by the 1884 earthquakes that left thousands dying or homeless over winter. Sadly, he died early at just 27 from a persistent and virulent tuberculosis. At the time his wife was pregnant with their third child, a boy who would become Alfonso XIII.
After his death, his wife held a national contest to design a monument and their son, Alfonso XIII, laid the foundation stone and inaugurated the statue of his father. This didn't happen until 1902, during the celebrations for his Alfonso XIII’s accession. It sounds touching but in reality, it was also a highly charged political move, reinforcing the link of continuity between father and son (no small matter considering the earlier civil wars over inheritance and competing claims to power).
Today, with the sparkling lake and blue boats in front of it, the monument looks more pretty, than sombre. It is probably the prettiest part of the park.
