Our particular Ecce Homo matritense of the Berlin Park
Although it is not something that everyone knows, today we are going to share with you a curiosity of our forum that, in addition to historical, is fun.
Do you know the Berlin Park? Yes, that one, the one in Chamartín. Well, the park owes its name to the fact that it retains a piece of the famous and demolished Berlin wall. Long before the case of Ecce Homo was known (the one in which our dear Cecilia tried to restore a classic Renaissance painting of great value generating a totally unrecognizable version), a municipal employee did something similar with that rest and its graffiti, which were the originals of the Berlin Wall.
What would you say is the oldest building in Madrid?
Neither the house of the chimneys, nor the cathedrals, nor the churches … The oldest building in Madrid, which was not necessarily built in our city, is the Temple of Debod. It has more than 2000 years of history and it was a gift from Egypt to Spain for the participation of the Franco dictatorship in the UNESCO campaign to save the sanctuaries of Nubia.
Did you know that Madrid has the silver medal of some records in size?
Although there is no beach in Madrid, go, go … Madrid has the second largest fish market in the world, after Tokyo: Mercamadrid. The Plaza de Toros de las Ventas is the second largest in the world, after Mexico City. And, in addition, Madrid celebrates the second largest LGTBi pride on the planet, after San Francisco.
