This is not a pretty square but if you want to see what must be one of the largest Spanish flags in the world then come here. Also there is the huge concrete Colon monument. Otherwise a bit featureless.

This is an interesting mix of plaza, gardens and memorials, the largest is the neo modern monuments in memorial to the Spanish civil war, they are both impressive in size and stature

It's a nice public garden with a statue and some plantings. It's in the city central and in a walking distance from a train station.

I think other reviewers have been a bit harsh here. yes, they're correct that it isn't strictly a jardines more a graveled/sanded over park, however, it houses the biggest spanish flag in the world (which was recently renewed at an eye-watering cost of 400,000 euros)...More

No actual gardens here, just a lot of Chucky stones covering the area, to the rear is a large sculpture and a statue to the General of the Spanish Armada

Came here in the expectation of finding some nice gardens. All there were was an open paved space, some statues to Colombus and a few trees. Maybe try Retiro park?

Barrio de Salamanca
Broad, tree-lined avenues with pretty streetlights

beautiful condominium buildings that make up most
blocks in this area, this part of town is refined and
quiet. It is also host to a few of the city's large
shopping avenues, including Calle Serrano and Calle
Jose Ortega y Gasset. A walk down these streets will
reveal upscale chains, small boutiques, and plenty of
