The Atocha Train station is the largest railway station in Spain. It includes a botanical garden spread over an area of 4,000 square meter under the arched skylight. A garden was designed to keep tropical species, plants and fauna. Over 7,000 plants live inside the station, and many of them are palm trees. This indoor tropical jungle was inaugurated in 1992.
