Beautiful area to walk around in & take pictures.
In my opinion its not something u have to see ? But certainly doesnt hurt If u are in the area to stop by walk around & enjoy the scenery.
This is one of those things that is not that special, but you will see it anyway because it is in a prime spot.
The gardens are right to the right of the Royal Palace. If you need a break from touring the palace and church you can come here and enjoy the greenery. There is not much to do here except look at the shrubberies and walk around.
Sometimes concerts are held here in the summer, so you might want to check that out.
These immaculately kept gardens are set just below the North Facade of the Palacio Real, which meant we wandered through them into Old Madrid on every day of our holiday.
The sweeping pathways, delicate fountains, rows of statues and impeccably maintained hedges make this public garden a beautiful space either to sit down in with something to read, or to wander through hand in hand while you gaze up at the majesty of the Palace.
The feel of Royal Madrid just resonates through this place oh, and it's a great place for a photo opportunity.
Beautifully laid out large garden of box hedges, pools and statues, looking like something from a romantic movie set. This is the place to bring your girlfriend or that specila someone you've just met. It also seems to be the place that late night clubbers choose to get a bit of morning shut eye. You descend a huge staircase from the Calle de Baillen to get to it, and there are magnificent views of the side of the Palacio Real.
There is a little hidden bit as well to the right hand side that i only noticed the third time i walked past, which had almost nobody sitting there. I think you have to walk down into the gardens, then immediately turn right and go back up some little steps.
The rougher part of the garden had a stage set up in it, and apparently in August there are flamenco performances there most evenings (but not every evening). I can't think of a better location, to sit there at sunset with the Palacio Real right there. Beautiful. Just be wary of the little girls wanting money for the deaf school, they are definitely very dodgy but very sweet, stay well away from them.
These gardens, set just below the Royal Palace, are a very romantic setting, perfect if you want to impress a date! They are classical, Elizabethan gardens with two stone ponds and white stone statues representing the Spanish Royalty. Best seen at night and especially by moonlight. During the summer months there are free Classical music concerts here.
