A beautiful place with tree labyrinths and everything is clean and blooming there. A large palace is worth visiting

These gardens are big but you are only allowed to access them through one gate even though there are three gates, so you end up walking a long way just to find the entrance. Still, you do get a great view of the palace from...More

This garden on the west side of Royal Palace. This garden is huge and spacious. Yet it is very quiet and peaceful, only a few visitors around. Best place to take a photo is at the fountain with a central lovely statue surrounded by flowers,...More

This place is very quiet, you could spend time walking or watching flowers and ducks. Belongs to Patrimonio Nacional and it is an historic garden. The name came from an event with moorishs, but it is not related with his design. Important to say, there...More

Yes, there a good view up towards the Royal Palace, yes it is peaceful and a place for a stroll, but the overall impression is one of neglect. It could be spectacular but it isn’t. Access is difficult and time consuming. If you want a...More

You enter these gardens via Paseo Virgen del Puerto. I was expecting to see Moorish style gardens but I could have been walking into an English garden. Even more confusing, I read that they were designed to resemble the gardens at the Palace of Versailles....More

The garden is close to the palacio real and sabattini gardens, but is not well known by tourists so it is very relaxing as you will be walking the lanes almost alone. Yo do not have to pay to enter, just enjoy the sights!

There is only one entrance to the garden - the north end of Paseo de la Virgen del Puerto road. So it's a long walk to get there if you are at the Royal Palace as you have to make one big round outside the...More

From the palace, you have to walk down Cuesta San Vicente, as if you were going to the Principe Pio Station. Turn left onto the street Paseo de la Virgen del Puerto. Not far, on your left is the entrance to the Moorish... More
