A place where time stops

The Jardines de Murillo are the result of a 1911 gift from the Huerta del Retiro del Alcázar.  Its final design is the work of architect Juan Talavera y Heredia. The gardens present a composition based on grid paths formed by hedges and sidewalks which create octagonal roundabouts where they meet, with fountains in the centres and benches covered with tiles.  The flowerbeds are filled with dense masses of vegetation, giving the park an intimate atmosphere.  The gardens end at the Plaza de Refinadores, presided over by a statue dedicated to Don Juan Tenorio.

Included among its trees is an immense hundred-year-old ficus.
