Royal Botanic Garden - Review

30000 plants and flowers, 2000 trees and herbs spread out over 8 hectares and three major terraces make for one of the coolest urban botanic gardens you’ll ever see. The terraces are by category: medicinal, orchard and endemic; a taxonomic collection set around pretty fountains; and trees arranged in 19th century Romantic landscaping. Spain’s largest herbarium is here. The whole idea behind the design of the place is to promote botanical curiosity… but it’s also an excellent and tranquil escape from the city’s noise.

Royal Botanic Garden, Madrid Reviews

  • It was not very impressive. There are better gardens and parks in the city which are free. However there are plants and flowers from all around the world and one can easily spend a couple of hours exploring the entire gardens. Guided tours are also offered. There are also temporary expositions held inside the gardens that one can visit for an extra fees. There is also a cafeteria.

  • Really enjoyed our visit. The highlight was the Japanese Bonsai garden. There were about 30 Bonsai trees. They were exquisite. In late September the rest of the gardens were not at their best. However we still found the gardens to be a relaxing haven in a bustling city.

  • Warning: there is a fee to enter this park. But it's amazing. If you are at all into horticulture and enjoy seeing a variety of species, this is the place for you. Also, it's a quiet respite from the urban pace of Madrid. Pack some water and hang out for an hour or two. There are clean washrooms on hand here too.

  • We went and toured around the garden for a couple of hours. Went into the green house type exhibit. It was wild to feel the difference in humidity. We needed up taking a break on a park bench and just watched the ducks and pigeons. So much to see.

  • Amazing Botanical Gardens not only because they were founded originally as the collection of medicinal and culinary herbs for the Royal Palace. Plant collection is quite good including rarities from America. There is a bonsai collection. Also as interesting things you can see the vines and (in autumn) grapes corresponding to some of the different varieties cultivated in Spain. Plant information is in English too. The best time to visit is obviously when plants are flourishing (good rose collection, rhododendrons, irises, paeonias.... so April to early June) but it is a beautiful oasis is in the center of Madrid anytime in the year. I only give it 4 stars because there could be a more professional welcome and also because the information related to plants could be made more attractive.
