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.
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.
After touring the palacio real we decided to take a look at the Jardines de Sabatini which are right next door to the palace. When compared to the parque del Retiro this park is underwhelming, but on it's own is quite beautiful and understated. Nice...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
desired. The iconic Puerta del Sol is the giant crossroads of the city and a must-see attraction at any time of the day. The nearby Plaza Mayor, completely enclosed by historic red buildings, is an ideal place to grab a bite to eat outside, amidst scores of tables and people out for a stroll. Plaza Isabel II (also known as “Opera”) is smaller and a good meeting spot, and the stately Plaza del Oriente is the front yard of the Royal Palace. Centro can be touristy (pickpockets are unfortuately not unheard-of here), crowded, and sometimes gimmicky, but it is also the place to experience classic Madrid.
