MADRID: MARKETS, PARKS AND GARDENS

I spent a few days in Madrid for Easter and I would like to show you some pictures of the places I liked the most:

  • Temple of Debod
  • Royal Palace of Madrid
  • Sabatini Gardens
  • Campo del Moro
  • San Miguel Market
  • Retiro Park

As you will see, what I like the most in Madrid was its parks and gardens, which were really peaceful and quiet.


But before the pictures of the parks and gardens, the first place we saw in Madrid:
