The Landscape of Light includes the Retiro Park and the Prado Promenade.
Madrid has just received this distinction, awarded by Unesco as a universal value in the category of Cultural Landscape to the urban ensemble that includes the Retiro Gardens and the Prado Promenade. The Landscape of Light.
The awarded area includes six museums and originated in the 16th century. It includes the Prado Promenade and the Retiro Park, with its corresponding surroundings, and is already part of this list as a Cultural Landscape.
One of its exceptional features recognised by Unesco is its landscape, which has been shaped by man throughout history, highlighting the value of its urban planning intervention that combines science, nature and art as an engine for the transformation of society. The Prado Promenade was the first tree-lined promenade in a European capital whose origin dates back to the 16th century with the aim of offering the citizens of Madrid an open space that would encourage rest and leisure in a landscaped environment.
During the Age of Enlightenment, the Prado Promenade and its surroundings acquired even greater urbanistic importance, as a series of institutions (the Natural History Cabinet, the Royal Botanical Gardens and the Royal Observatory of Madrid) were lined up here to promote scientific research and extend this knowledge to the whole of society. This model subsequently spread to most Spanish cities and to Latin America.
This recognition places even more value on our historical, artistic and cultural legacy, which will undoubtedly attract the interest of investors and private individuals due to its growing real estate value. The surroundings of Recoletos next to the Retiro as well as the Prado Promenade and Los Jerónimos neighbourhood shine even brighter with this worldwide recognition.
