A secret Garden in Madrid.
I found this by entering a Google search and came across several secret gardens.
However, I am a bit confused as the web site mentions cypresses and I don't remember seeing any.
The address is Calle Huertas 2, which is near Plaza Santa Ana.
A Google map search produces the same place named

I wonder if they water those lawns in summer? Be interesting to have some August pictures for contrast!
