The Royal Botanic Gardens of Madrid are perfect for those who love horticulture! The Garden of Madrid can be found next to the Prado Museum, and can make a perfect afternoon or day visit! Within the gardens one can find over 5,00 different species of plants. The gardens themselves also have an extensive history. While first installed by King Ferdinad VI in 1755 in a different city, the gardens were then moved by King Charles to be installed in Madrid where you can find them now. The gardens themselves include a variety of green house areas, and terraces. The gardens also provide a cafeteria so you can stop and have lunch along the way! The gardens also hold many events during the year. During the Chritistmas season the gardens put on a light show which you can read more about here! The gardens also remain open all year around!
