I wanted to see Las Vistillas and whether the name had something to do with a privileged view of a part of Madrid that today we can not see well from the Viaduct Segovia because it is forbidden (too many deaths from suicide) actually had at the time the garden was created but among all the trees you could see only part of the Almudena Cathedral. Still has interesting details and is a quiet place where you can escape the city hustle to read a book or dating as seen through there.
One of the main areas of these small gardens is the Monument to Ramón Gómez de la Serna, a writer and Madrid-based journalist who was born in the late nineteenth century. Located in a square dedicated to another writer, Gabriel Miró and is composed of a source, several chairs around you let you enjoy the good weather and the view of Cathedral. At the other end is a statue of La Violetera, after much searching on the internet to look this monument to a profession that no longer exists of women selling violets near the Calle de Alcalá became something controversial. Arose suspicions that the muse to Santiago de Santiago created the sculpture was a figure with associations to a particular political party, so get here that somehow disappoints because it leads us to believe and imagine how would these vendors at park.

Perto da famosa Plaza de Espanha está o parque María Luisa, parte dos jardins do Palácio de San Telmo que os duques de Montpensier ofereceram á cidade e daí a dedicatória á Infanta María Luisa, filha do rei D. Fernando e María Cristina. Construído no final do século XIX é o maior parque de Sevilha que para além das suas zonas verdes tem vários lagos, fontes, estátuas e trabalhos de cerâmica que fazem valer a pena explorar cada recanto de esta cidade.
Close to the famous Plaza of Spain is the Maria Luisa Park, part of the gardens of the Palacio de San Telmo the Dukes of Montpensier offered to the city and hence the dedication will Infanta María Luisa, daughter of King Ferdinand and Maria Cristina. Built in the late nineteenth century is the largest park in Seville that in addition to its green areas has several lakes, fountains, statues and pottery works that make it worthwhile to explore every corner of this city.
The name says a lot, this park is dedicated to the new millennium and in it we can see some examples of modern art as the aforementioned Cloud Gate but also the Jay Pritzker Pavillion or the Crown Fountain.
Near the Crown Fountain and from the same artist – Jaume Plensa – there are in the open-air galleries of Boeing sculptures of his 1004 Portraits collection. This park is undoubtedly a museum of modern art outdoor and worth your visit.
