Madrid has been called a “green” city. This is because there are several wide-open spaces in the form of parks and gardens where one can take in the beautiful and verdant colors of nature. One such space is the Campo del Moro Gardens. Open from 10:00 am until 6:00 pm, these are Royal gardens, as evidenced by their location down the hill from Madrid’s Royal Palace. You have two wonderful views in one from both the palace and the gardens. It is a very pleasant area to stay for a day or a week, even longer.
You will be able to stroll through many varieties of trees, such as magnolia, boxwood, and cedar. Sit beside the fountain in the Campo del Moro Gardens, and enjoy the sights and sounds around you. Admire the gorgeous peacocks, and come prepared to feed the many ducks at the duck pond.
