Real Jardín Botánico – Madrid, España

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.
