Jardín Botánico (Botanical Garden) Review

Just south of the Prado, the gardens provide a pleasant place to stroll or sit under the trees. True to the wishes of King Carlos III, they hold many plants, flowers, and cacti from around the world.

    Jardín Botánico Review

    Nice way/place to either start or finish a visit to the Prado. Plenty of plants from anyplace the King's explorers explored. The great variety of 'meat-eating' plants are always a hit and look out for all the 'wild' cats! As of Fall 2009, garden admission was included in the Madrid Card.
