The Sabatini Gardens (Jardines de Sabatini) are part of the Royal Palace in Madrid, just north of the Plaza de Oriente. They were opened to the public by King Juan Carlos I in 1978 and are named after Francesco Sabatini (1722–1797), an 18th century Italian architect who designed the royal stables of the Royal Palace which previously occupied this site.
While the Royal Stables were demolished in 1933, Jardines de Sabatini were only completed in the late 1970's. Jardines de Sabatini are laid out in formal Neoclassic style, with of tightly-sheared hedges planted in symmetric geometrical patterns, adorned with a pool, statues and fountains. The trees are also planted in a geometric layout, clearly visible in the satellite view of the Google map of Madrid.
The statues within Sabatini Gardens are of Spanish kings and were originally found within the Royal Palace. Jardines de Sabatini are relatively quiet, and a good place to relax and view the palace away from the crowds that gather at the southern side.
