These gardens are in a lovely setting, nicely laid out and a bit of quiet, calm greenery in the midst of the city. However, we had hoped to see more blooms and colour - perhaps we visited at the wrong time of year to see...More

Spent an afternoon here when we were done with the bigger named tourist sites and looking for some peace and beauty. This is a working/teaching garden, so it doesn't have the polished appeal one might find in the gardens of the Loire Valley or some...More

We were walking there and it was neglected and dry, no flower to see and we asked ourselves why do they keep this open during the summer? You can spend your time and money on better things while in Madrid! Perhaps it is really beautiful...More

I used to visit the Botanical gardens in Melbourne, Sydney or London, where the grass and ponds are integrated with different species of trees and plants. Despite it is not an expensive fare i wouldn't recommend this spot for tourists visiting Madrid

Was expecting a bit more form somewhere with ‘Royal’ in the title. Very few plants out in bloom, a few dahlias and the odd rose. Not a lot of information displayed regarding the various plants. The highlight was the large greenhouse which contained a good...More

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
