El Huerto de las Monjas
Time Out says
This is one of the most charming secret gardens in Madrid. The Huerto de las Mojas was once protected by the walls of a convent, whose nuns turned the space into a garden. You can get in through a passageway between modern buildings at No 7 on C/Sacramento. In 1972, the religious building was demolished in order to build flats, though fortunately the garden remained untouched. In the centre you can admire a small fountain featuring three bronze cherubs at the centre of the space. There's nothing quite so relaxing as sitting on a nearby bench and listening to the sound of the fountain’s water – peace and quiet in the middle of the city.
