Garden is beautiful, well maintained, with statues along the sides of pond. The hedges and trees layout is like a maze. It was very hot and sunny in the afternoon. Best to visit in early morning or just before sunset.

Went to check out this garden located beside Royal palace as the palace was closed for some official occasion. It is beautifully maintained with sculptures located throughout the garden.

These gardens give a great view of the Royal Palace. They are formal and full of clipped Box hedges as well as evergreen trees plus water features and statues. There are some amazing Magnolia trees so maybe April would be stunning.

We were over by the opera house so decided to visit the Jardines de Sabatini. These are located below street level so quite a few steps had to be negotiated. The gardens are formally laid out with big water pools, mazes and benches covered by...More

Expansive plazas, local and foreign crowds, street
performers, colorful lights, window shopping,
restaurant signs promising the best paella, ham, and
churros con chocolate- this is downtown Madrid, a
collection of plazas interconnected by a network of
side streets. Some of these side streets are wide
pedestrian shopping routes, and some are hidden, so
it's possible to duck in and out of the bustle as
