Beautiful park with lots of benches to sit and enjoy the fountains. Lots of statues and the maze garden is very pretty.

Nice, well-kept little garden with some shade and not too many people. Nothing super special, but if you happen to be in the vicinity, it could be a nice spot to rest a bit on a bench and relax.

After visiting the palace this was a lovely place to go. We got some lovely photos of the water and gardens with the palace in the background but you don't need to spend that long here.

Tell me more, tell me more......In July and August the City builds a stage in the Sabatini Gardens, with the Royal Palace, as a backdrop, for concerts and performances as part of its 'Veranos de la Villa' Summer Arts Festival. We went to the one of the most famous zarzuelas (operetta from 19th Century Madrid), 'La Revoltosa'. We arrived early... More

We may have missed something but we found it pretty underwhelming. Small, unspectacular, nothing about it would make you want to return - not recommended

Go to Retiro park. This is well kept, but mainly hedges. It was rather small. If you exit it and keep walking down the hill to the base of where the palace "yard" would be there is an entrance to the palace grounds. It's worth a walk around in there.

This is a very small landscaped garden right next to the palace. There are great photos to be had here. Unfortunately, there is a temporary stage set up there and it blocks some of the views of the palace. Maybe it is only in the summer for cultural events? Nonetheless, a good short visit. There is a great ice cream... More

These gardens are right in front of the Royal Palace. I was very excited to visit since the pictures are splendid but when I got there I was disappointed to find that most of the garden was closed to the public by metal barriers since there was some concert going on in the first two weeks of July. I could... More

Very relaxed walking around. Certain areas are strewn with papers and cigarette butts saw drivers throwing papers out from their car
