Campo del Moro
  • Route 1: Historical Madrid

It was Queen Maria Cristina who decided to convert this site into a 19th century English-style garden. It had not been developed as a garden in the past, as it was not possible to connect the area to the Palacio Real, which was situated at a much higher altitude. This position was exploited to create one of the best views in Madrid, with the Palacio Real looming beyond an expansive green tapestry, surrounded by monumental fountains within an ample and shady romantic garden.
