This garden has some beautiful areas. There is a greenhouse with plants from all around the world. It was a treat to see some from NZ and Australia. Close to the greenhouse is a gorgeous pond with lots of ducks and ducklings. There are a...More
I liked this beautiful and large garden! I discovered that I could see the whole garden for about half a Euro. If I wanted to see all the exhibits and shows, it would have been more, but I just wanted a rest. So I walked...More
I passed by this botanic garden while heading to Prado Museum. There is an entrance fee of 6 euros. I decided not to go in as I have visited free gardens such as El Retiro Park, Jardines de Sabatini and Campo del Moro Gardens. I...More
I would have to say about 80% of the garden is dead, soil, or overgrown and needs trimming. There were very few spots that actually looked good. I was honestly very disappointed and annoyed to have paid for this. With the state this place was...More
I've been years ago but after a visit to Segovia's San Ildefonso Palace and gardens I wanted to see the one in Madrid again. Big disappointment. Maybe it's better in spring or early fall. This July, poor.
We visited last week in mid July. Obviously the place is not kept week as all the flower beds and plants were dried up and dusty in the heat and not watered or seemingly looked after at all. I was a bit annoyed that they...More
This was pretty but not the best botanical garden I’ve been to. It seemed very dry with not a ton of flowers blooming. The layout was pretty and symmetrical. We walked around the entire perimeter of the park not realizing there was only one entrance...More
We were there toward the end of May, we were very disappointed in the gardens.
I don't know if the time of year made a difference.
The grounds were very unkempt with weeds everywhere, dead flowers still attached and very little colour. Such a shame
Located just off the city centre, and next to the Prado Museum, the Botanical Gardens have had a chequered history since moving to this site in 1781, being totally abandoned for a period during the Spanish War of Independence, being rebuilt and then severely damaged...More
I know it is very cheap to get in but honestly, the lack of anything interesting to see, apart from the Hot House, is such a disappointment.
Weeds, very little colour and just boring. I wouldn't want to go again.
The cafe is nice.
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
Cibeles and Círculo de Bellas Artes cultural centers are other artsy hangouts to check out, with rooftop bars that provide impressive views of the city. While the Paseo del Prado and its roundabouts form a busy throughway in Madrid, a broad green pedestrian park in the middle is a calm and gorgeous place for a relaxing stroll. Just east of the museums, the Retiro Park is always a confluence of activity as families and friends of all ages take to the pretty paths and lawns to stretch their legs or to have a picnic.
