This is a glass structure in Madrid, Spain built in 1887 intended to showcase Filipino race, culture, arts, flora, fauna etc. It is located at the edge of a lake in Retiro Park.

I really cannot explain my feelings that day. I was looking at a structure that is an evidence of Spanish conquest and oppression to the Filipino people. I am tracing history. It’s no longer just words but I can now match them with vivid images. The Madrid 1887 exposition was much more of degradation and not of appreciation. Sigh. Anyway, it’s worth seeing. Fantastic architectural piece By Bosco.
