Atocha Station offers commuters a lush oasis from the hustle and bustle of the city. The former Atocha building for travellers was converted into a tropical garden. Inaugurated in 1992, the sprawling garden contains 7,000 plants from more than 260 species. It contains arboretum section with plants from around the world. The water lily ponds are home to numerous North and South American freshwater turtles that were former pets. After the turtles were abandoned by their owners and thrown into the wild, biologists rescued them from Madrid’s waterway. Travelers can stop and amusingly watch turtles in their sanctuary, find sanctum of their own on a bench amongst the flora, or shop and dine under the gorgeous architecture.
