Even though it might not be the most impressive botanical garden in the world, I would definitely recommend it for a visit, especially in July and August since the heat in the afternoon is unbearable. In our opinion, there are three highlights: 1, Bonsai tree...More

There are many plant species in the gardens. I highly recommend you make time to see the gardens if you are interested in botany of any sorts. My cousins and I ended up spending a little over 3 hours in the gardens.

Not really worth the effort tbh if your looking for huge amounts of varied flowers or plants. Ideal to get out of the July heat for an hour.

Paseo del Prado
The area around the elegant Paseo del Prado boulevard
is much-visited by both locals and tourists. The
world-famous Prado, the Reina Sofia, and the
Thyssen-Bornemisza museums form a triangle of art and
culture that spans this grand and beautiful avenue. On
weekdays, the Prado Museum opens its doors for free
after-work hours, drawing a diverse and excited queue
of art lovers that wraps around the block. Palacio de
