The Botanical Gardens, did any of you know that there is actually more than one botanical garden? This girl will be the first to admit it, but it turns out Montreal isn’t the only place that boasts a beautiful botanical garden that’s home to many exotic flowers. The garden we are talking about is called the Royal Botanical Garden and is located in Madrid, Spain.
The garden has 20 acres of land and is home to approximately 30,000 different types of flowers and plants, not to mention approximately 1,500 different species of trees. It’s a garden lover’s dream! The Royal Botanical Garden, known in Madrid as the Royal Botanical Garden, was commissioned (or paid for) by Carlos III at the end of the 18th century. Surely this was the best investment Carlos made.
The Garden is located in the heart of Paseo del Parado and tourists can stroll through the garden to take a break from the noise and bustle of everyday life. Once a person has oriented himself to this beautiful piece of heaven, he can proceed to the Prado Museum, where he can learn a bit about the history of Spain. Whether you enjoy the museum or the garden first, rest assured that both are worth spending time in and will certainly never be forgotten by you and your loved ones.
The Royal Garden is not the largest of the many botanical gardens in this world, but it is by far one of the most extensive in its collection of flowers, trees and plants. With the many different species of each, the average tourist probably feels that there are not enough hours to enjoy all that the Garden has to offer. On the plus side, the Garden never has a low season.
As mentioned, the plant life and trees that grow in the Royal Garden come from all over the world; there are Irises that are from South Africa to Peonies that come from Japan, Korea or even China.
Madrid’s climate favors favorable growth conditions for the vegetation that lives there. Unsurprisingly, this is a boon for both tourists and Madrid’s economy. Year-round tourists are great for making money.
