The two things about pick pockets; they don't hurt you, and you feel so very foolish. The picture of the Royal Botanic Garden here shows the ticket gate and just a few people. That's exactly the way it was when we were there, and it...More

The Royal Botanic Gardens in Madrid sounds a lot grander than they actually are! The admission price is very reasonable for seniors so we took a stroll. The day was hot but the gardens were quite dry, there were plenty of nice plants but given...More

With its 8 hectares, the Real Jardín Botánico is not the largest I’ve ever seen and strolled in, but it’s one of the most impressive. It contains a collection of over 5,000 species, exhibited with scientific and aesthetic criteria in a series of terraces that...More

Wish I had read the review of the person who came in Sept and was disappointed. Very little to see. Much was dried out beds, and minimal flowers. We paid €4 pp so I assume this was cheaper than during Spring/Summer months. Shame - I'm...More

Cose to the Prado a good spot to relax wth lovely old trees and plants. 2 large houses with desert and tropical plants. The entrance is also the exit which is a nuisance as it would be nice to walk through rather than round.

Excellent selection of plants and trees. Well worth a visit in shaded location. Long queue at entrance and only one person serving. Upside concessions on 50 cents

Magnificent gardens with such a great variety of plants and flowers (roses of all possible colors, bright purple irises, whimsical tropical flowers...). The line was long but moved very fast and in 20 minutes we were in enjoying our leisurely walk along the beautiful leafy...More

We visited the garden in the evening after travelling all day and it was an oasis of calm in a busy city. Beautiful range of trees and shrubs and gardens in interesting sections. Well worth a visit but don’t expect a shed load of flowers...More

Choose your time to visit wisely. If flowers are in full bloom it would be worth a visit, but when they are over it is not very interesting, particularly when it costs you €4. Over 65s get in for €0.5, which is good. You are...More

Paseo del Prado
The area around the elegant Paseo del Prado boulevard
is much-visited by both locals and tourists. The
world-famous Prado, the Reina Sofia, and the
Thyssen-Bornemisza museums form a triangle of art and
culture that spans this grand and beautiful avenue. On
weekdays, the Prado Museum opens its doors for free
after-work hours, drawing a diverse and excited queue
of art lovers that wraps around the block. Palacio de
