“A real paradise in the middle of the city showing specimens, founded three centuries ago when the years of plant hunting travels funded by Spanish kings and were collecting plants and from mostly everywhere. Very interesting design of layout, including a green house for exhibitions and events. A delicious visit!”

Monument / Landmark
“The gate was built by Sabatini in 1778 as part of the city decoration restorations promoted by Charles III. It is made of granite and is an excellent example of proportion, harmony, and elegance. The King commissioned the work to Sabatini in order to commemorate his arrival at the capital in 1759. The gate was located at the entrance of the city, next to the Alcalá de Henares road, from which it received its name. https://www.esmadrid.com/en/tourist-information/puerta-de-alcala”
