We happened here as the palace was closed for a state function upon arrival. So, we made the best of the local area & spent some time in these beautiful gardens. The magnolias are magnificent, as are the shots to be had with the palace as a backdrop. Definitely worth a visit, especially if you're already at the palace.

Lovely walk in the Jardines de Sabatini, right next to the Royal Palace. Nice quiet areas and fountains, with shade under the trees.

Definitely worth a visit to and walk through the gardens adjacent to the palace in the heart of the city. Go for the photo by the reflecting pond facing the palace for a stunning memory of Madrid.

Nice to walk in the Jardines de Sabatini that are next to the Royal Palace. These were landscaped and laid out in the 1930's and the plan of the gardens were based on the original design from the 18th century. Nice secluded spots and fountains and shaded area under pine trees that offer some relief from the hot sun. Free.... More

This was my first visit to these gardens but it will not be my last. Great setting with the view out of Madrid on one side and the Royal Palace on the other. Quite peacefull formal gardens.

The gardens at the royal palace are well-maintained and attractive. It doesn't seem to get crowded there, so it's a great place to take a little break from seeing all of Madrid's amazing sites. There are some good photo opportunities of the palace with the reflecting pool in front as well as fountains.

Staying in Centro

Neighborhood 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.
