Historical data

Retiro's history has been strongly determined by the presence of the park with the same name and the railway facilities located at the south and west of this District.

Retiro Park, together with Paseo del Prado, has given its own personality to the area of Los Jerónimos, while the rest of the District is determined by Atocha Railway Station and previously also by Niño Jesús Station.

During the 20th Century, the area consolidated as residential areas for people with a growing economic power. [1]
