A brand new green park has opened close to Madrid, in the village of San Sebastian de los Reyes. Desert City, a huge complex of more than 4,500 square meters dedicated to cacti, with a large garden, the 1st technological nursery specializing in xerophilism, a laboratory, a cafeteria and terraces, among other pecularities.
Desert City is an oasis 20 minutes away from Madrid, the architecture here is as important as the plants themselves and it integrates perfectly in the garden. Here you can come to buy a new cactus for that pot that you have empty, have a coffee and even watch the sunset in a landscape that seems to come from a far away country. This is a new experience of nature that we had not seen until now in the capital.
Desert City garden is divided into 5 parts:
Arizona - is dedicated to the American Wild West, there are different types of cacti and even a Grand Canyon!
Oasis - is a perfect place to relax. You will hear tropical birds and smell the flavours of melissa, mint and other plants. The zone is full of palm trees and exotic plants.
Tabernas - This curious space of minimalist landscaping breaks with the organic aesthetics of the rest of the garden. There you will see an artificial lake that refletcs the cacti and the palmtrees and gives you a welcome.
Toscana - This a reinterpretation of posh Italian gardens. You will see typical species such as olive trees, pomegranate or lavender mixed with others of Mexican origin such as yuccas, sotols, opuntia, agaves as well as many others.
Guajira - Located at the entrance, under the walkway that crosses the garden, this environment has a diversity of cacti species, Mediterranean xerophytes and classic gardening plants.
Desert City is opened every day from 10am to 8:30pm, on Saturday, Sundays and bank holidays it´s opened till 9:30pm.
