  • I enjoyed my time walking around in a grid setup garden. Lots of different species of plants and trees. Very relaxing and shaded walk  more »
  • Next to the station of Atocha and the Retiro there is another small green lung for Madrid. There are usually no crowds so walking along its paths reading the posters of trees and plants becomes a very pleasant experience. It has a small tour with bonsai and usually houses temporary exhibitions in one of its buildings

  • This place gets 5 stars, solely for its amazing Bonsai tree collection. The best collection I've ever seen, with a wide variety of trees. Went in September and saw a few trees that had fully sized fruit on, I think it was pomegranate and maybe a pear? Really well designed section of the garden - it's right at the top so make sure to go. The rest of the park is good maybe 4/5 stars.
  • Loved it! Well I love botanical gardens in general but it's a very pleasant, chill way to see the flora and fauna, it does cost to get in but I think it was like 4€ and if you're a student with ID you can get a discount. Nice little break from a little tourist jaunt.
