While planning our trip to Spain for May 2010, I read about the Real Jardín Botánico and could not believe that I never went there when I lived in Madrid as a student. I penciled it in for the end of our day at two of the three great art museums in Madrid. I was so glad that we did, it was better than I expected and that’s always fun. Below are highlights from our visit to this peaceful oasis in the busy city that is Madrid.
There were these interesting sculptures there too:
I highly recommend this wonderful garden for anyone visiting Madrid.

azaleas and irises are beautiful. great garden art too.
I love finding peaceful and beautiful places like this in the midst of the hustle and bustle of a big city. thanks for your comment :)
So pretty! I wish I’d seen those sculptures!
I wondered if they were temporary but when I looked at them again, they looked kinda permanent. but who knows? you mighta just missed them. you will have to go back ;) thanks for your comments!
