Maybe it was the time of year, but I didn't see anything that blew my socks off. Most of the plants grow in my area of San Diego so I really did not see anything new.

A real little gem of a place so close to the centre. Ideal to visit after the Prado or on the way to the main train station. Not as busy as the park and closer to the centre.

Best of the best, a well maintained park, and the plants well identified. 2-3 hours depending on your interest.Many unusual specimens, as well as many duplicates. True it is lacking some maintenance such as raking up leaves, but all in all this garden is awesome.

Paseo del Prado
The area around the elegant Paseo del Prado boulevard
is much-visited by both locals and tourists. The
world-famous Prado, the Reina Sofia, and the
Thyssen-Bornemisza museums form a triangle of art and
culture that spans this grand and beautiful avenue. On
weekdays, the Prado Museum opens its doors for free
after-work hours, drawing a diverse and excited queue
of art lovers that wraps around the block. Palacio de
