Views: Retiro Park & Paseo Del Prado In Madrid, Spain

UNESCO has added Madrid’s historic Paseo del Prado boulevard and Retiro Park to its list of world heritage sites.

The Buen Retiro Park, Retiro Park or simply El Retiro is one of the largest parks of the city of Madrid, Spain. The park belonged to the Spanish Monarchy until the late 19th century, when it became a public park. In 2021, Buen Retiro Park became part of a combined UNESCO World Heritage Site with Paseo del Prado.

The Paseo del Prado is one of the main boulevards in Madrid, Spain. It runs north–south between the Plaza de Cibeles and the Plaza del Emperador Carlos V (also known as Plaza de Atocha), with the Plaza de Cánovas del Castillo (the location of the Fuente de Neptuno, and of the Ritz and Palace five-star hotels) lying approximately in the middle. The Paseo del Prado forms the southern end of the city’s central axis (which continues to the north of Cibeles as the Paseo de Recoletos, and further north as the Paseo de la Castellana). It enjoys the status of Bien de Interés Cultural (BIC), and as part of a combined UNESCO World Heritage Site with Buen Retiro Park.

Water Sports: Hydrofoil Windsurfing In Spain

In the southern Spanish windsurfing paradise of Tarifa, top German athlete Nico Prien demonstrates his trick to ‘fly’ across the water; hydrofoiling. With the support of a fin-like foil, the board is held up above the waterline – and it’s said to feel as if you were flying above the surface. Is foiling the future of water sports?

Travel Tours: One Day In Valencia, Spain (4K Video)

The Spanish city of Valencia offers a colourful mix of a beautiful old town with impressive Art Nouveau market halls, futuristic architecture, many green areas and wonderful beaches. There is a great joie de vivre, which is not surprising at all thanks to the Mediterranean climate – even in November, when I was visiting. The pleasant atmosphere and weather encourages you to spend time outdoor. I start my camera tour from the former defence towers Torres de Serranos and the impressive old town. And those who know me or my videos know that I am a big fan of old towns, and in Valencia there really is a lot to discover. Side trips to the Ciudad de las Artes y de las Ciencias with its futuristic architecture and the beach are of course are also a must.
