Away from the maddening crowd

This is a quaint little park to stroll around to get away from the hustle and bustle of Madrid. The little mazes are cute and after descending the steps it's quite quiet.

This garden is lacated just beside the Royal Palace, and receive this name because the Sabatini was the architect that design and build it. It shows the magnificent spanish kingdom era.

Enjoyable walk around the gardens, good view of the Royal Palace, but not much else to see, would be better in the spring/summer.

Located next to the Palace, these gardens are well maintained and offer a good picture opportunity, particularly with the palace in the background. The gardens are certainly not special compared to those around the world, however they do offer an opportunity to relax in busy Madrid.

They are in the back of the Royal Palace. Entrance is free, but aren't too many things to see. Worth a picture at least...

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.

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.
