Within the El Retiro park, very close to the entrance from the Plaza de la Independencia by the Puerta de Alcalá, is the Teatro de Títeres, an institution for young audiences in Madrid.
This permanent puppet theatre offers a show almost every Saturday and Sunday where art, interpretation, music and literature come together in a spectacular way. An open air stage to which the loyal public keep returning weekend after weekend. Also, during the summer months, the Titirilandia Festival completes its program with particularly relevant productions.
