Entrance and exit is free to these formal gardens via way of stairs. The day we went somebody tried to steal from my wife's' bag.Luckily, she had nothing on her steal on the day. It is noticeable that though there were police near the palace there were none in the gardens or nearby so beware of pickpockets and thieves. However,... More

These carefully manicured gardens lay immediately adjacent to the Royal Palace, and as such were plainly designed for Royal diversion. Directly across from our Hotel Pio, they made a pleasant venue for an excursion or a shady spot on a sunny day

Very average garden but it's a nice photo spot if you want to get the palace and the fountains in the same frame. However do beware of pickpockets as there seems to be a group that's based in the area. We were targeted by this woman (who was with a male partner helping her distract our attention) but luckily we... More

Low perfectly manicured maze-like hedges are the principal feature of these easily accessible gardens. Plenty of seats to relax & enjoy the peace. A good place to fill in some time.

The gardens are right outside the palace, but in my opinion, there was nothing much to look at. Go to Retiro Park if you want something pretty to walk through.

We passed through the gardens enroute from the Temple Debod to the Cathedral. There's not much to see but it's worth a quick detour if you're passing by.

Do not miss the chance to visit and take a walk in the Royal garden. It is beautiful and very relaxing. Do a siesta here.

Staying in Centro

Neighbourhood Profile
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.
