The Puerta de Dante, in the extreme southeastern corner of the Parque del Buen Retiro, is watched over by a carved mural of Dante’s Inferno.

Inferno is the first part of Italian writer Dante Alighieri's 14th-century epic poem Divine Comedy. It is followed by Purgatorio and Paradiso. The Inferno tells the journey of Dante through Hell, guided by the ancient Roman poet Virgil.
