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

The entrance to these gardens are very difficult to find, there is only one way in and the same way out. At the entrance is the best photo looking up to the Royal Palace. The rest was scruffy with a lot of weeds, they did...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

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!

I think this park is a well-kept secret. There were so few people when we visited. The view of the palace was lovely. You could almost feel the presences of previous kings and queens who strolled through this park. If you want to get away...More

After reading reviews and reading that it was inspired by Versailles, we went off to check it out. It first took a while to find the entrance as there is only one. When we entered the gardens, I got excited as it had a wide...More

This place is placed behind the royal palace. It’s so beautiful and a wonderful place to go to get a quiet moment in a busy city.

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
