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.

The gardens in the fall aren't as colorful or lush, but still an enjoyable walk on a nice day. It would be more interesting in the spring, but also probably more crowded. There is a nice gift shop / cafe which had some small plates and wine. We were able to eat at a table outside.
Very nice garden. Well manicured. Likely extremely beautiful in the spring and summer. In the Winter, you see the potential and still can admire the many types of plants and trees including extremely large agave plants.
These are some beautiful botanical gardens in the middle of the city next door to the Prado. They feature various plants from around the world and it's a peaceful escape from the business that can be the Prado. It costs 6 Euro to enter, and there are various discounts available to seniors and etc. It's also FREE for teachers, even non-Spanish teachers! Really cool, really pleasant.
Well, October is the wrong time to visit the garden if you want to see bursts of colors. We were too exhausted after visiting the Prado museum next door and only interested to go someplace that's quiet and relaxing. The garden was definitely quiet even though the location is in the busy section of Madrid and not many people were on the grounds which was a bonus for us. Hopefully, our next visit will greet us with a burst of colors.
We really enjoyed the Botanical Gardens in Madrid. It’s really cheap to get in, we paid 6 euros each to see the special exhibit and it was worth it. The garden is filled with various plants and vegetables. We saw a really cool mother and son exhibit here. The son would draw paintings and his mother would embroider work over his paintings.
