It's a classical garden with neatly cut hedge mazes, not a flower garden. There are some nice water features so great place to take some photos but not a can't miss stop. Free entry so pretty place to take a rest if you need it.

It is an oasis of green close to the Royal Palace and other sights around. It is very well kept and clean.

Another lovely small garden which is located at the side of the Royal Palace, and has fountains, water features, statues, flower beds, topiary and box hedging. Lots of people had stepped over the box hedging around the pond, and were just relaxing by the waters edge. There are lots of steep steps to get into the garden if approached from... More

Not too small garden behind the royal palace, nothing else. Just to take some photos after going to the palace.

We wandered through here after the palace on our way to Plaza Espana. Great views of the "other" side of the palace.

The Jardines de Sabatini is an enjoyable garden. It is quite a formal garden with a geometric pattern. One can sit there in peace and quiet after seeing the neighboring Palacio Real.

We stood in a hotel across the street from Jardines de Sabatini. The Jardines were quite magical, my daughter Luna really enjoyed. Definitely a must visit while in Madrid.

This is a good place to chill after a museum visit. It's to the left as you exit the palace. There are 2 ice cream shops across the street to grab some refreshments and walk down few steps to soothing greenery.

Staying in Centro

Neighborhood Profile
Centro
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.
