The Jardín Botánico was founded by Ferdinand VI in 1755, and was designed by the architects Francisco Sabatini and Juan de Villanueva. Some of its most interesting features include the gates known as the Puerta de Murillo, and the Puerta del Rey, and the Pabellón Villanueva. Its lovely neo-Gothic layout and its location in the centre of the city make it one of the most distinctive botanical gardens in Europe. From here you can go to Museo del Prado which holds numerous masterpieces by El Greco, Velázquez, Goya, Bosch, Titian, Van Dyck and Rembrandt.
