Photo of the Week – Real Jardin Botánico de Madrid

This week’s photo is from the Real Jardin Botánico de Madrid.

Situated next to the Prado Museum, the gardens date back to 1755.  The gardens have three outdoor sections and two greenhouses.  There are over 30,000 plants and flowers and over 1,500 trees.  I spent a pleasant Saturday evening in the gardens.  A great way to escape from the hustle and bustle of Madrid.

  1. The botanical gardens are one of my favorite places in Madrid! So lovely! I think they are sort of underrated with tourists. (I liked them better than the Prado!)
