Parque Quinta Normal Greenhouse
A beautiful deserted greenhouse in the middle of a park.
Quinta Normal Park has a lot to offer.
Founded in 1841, the gorgeous landscape houses a collection of museums, a duck-filled pond, and paddle boats for the children to tool around in. Despite all of the new, modern features and regular care, there is one ghost from the past that still lingers, decrepit and forgotten.
With ratty walls and broken glass shards sticking out on the domed roof, this old greenhouse is a reminder of the original purpose of the park - a place for greenhouses to cultivate foreign plant species.
Update June 2019: There is no more glass in the greenhouse, they took it all out.
