Photographer's Note

2-nd from Madrid. Here maybe be seen on the left main entrance to Principe Pio railway station and on the right in background the gardens of Campo del Moro.
This park stands at the foot of what was once an Arab fortress, now the Royal Palace. It was where the Moorish troops set up their war camp and from where they fought furiously against the Christian army during the reconquest of Spain, hence the nameŚCampo del Moro (Moorish Camp). The simple green space was later converted into a romantic garden, and despite getting rid of many ancient trees to create the lawn, there are still many proud old pines, oaks, yews and a huge redwood.
