Halloween en família

This autumn URSO Hotel invites you to live a unique Halloween experience in Madrid with this guide that hosts the most unusual and hidden places of the capital:

Chamberí Ghost Station: 10 minutes walking from URSO Hotel discover what, some time ago, was the first subway line in Madrid. A stop that for decades has been closed as a “ghost station”, and that currently serves as a crossing point from Bilbao to Iglesia district -or vice versa-, but without stopping.

Enter into the old station of Chamberí, also known as Andén 0, turned into a museum that shows the suburban of the early twentieth century, with original furniture and platforms, as well as walls, vaults and billboards from 1919 until its closure in 1966.

Fountain of the Fallen Angel: In the wellknown Parque del Retiro, there is the only public monument in Madrid that refers to the Fallen Angel. Located on top of a marble pillar in the centre of the fountain and surrounded by sinister creatures, the monument refers to the moment when the Fallen Angel is expelled from paradise. The bronze monument, work of the sculptor Ricardo Bellver, belonged originally to the Prado Museum, being donated to the city of Madrid in 1885 for its public exhibition in this park.

Reina Sofía Museum: Located in a building that was once a hospital, the legend tells that the souls of the people who occupied it and were trapped in its rubble … Come to this building with history to enjoy some of his temporary exhibitions, such as “Dorothea Tanning. Behind the door”, “Invisible”, “Another door” “or” Luigi Ghirri. The Map and the Territory”.

The Temple of Debod: Located next to the West Park of Madrid, this monument was a gift from Egypt to Spain in 1968 for the contributions of Spain to save historic places that would have flooded after the construction of the dam of Aswan.
Created in the 4th century BC in the Nile Valley in Egypt, and dedicated to the Egyptian gods Amun and Isis, the Temple of Debod offers one of the best sunsets in Madrid.
