There aren’t just rose gardens in Madrid. Take some time during your stay to stroll through this exuberant dahlia garden.
The Dahlia Garden of San Francisco is a recently constructed garden that was opened in 2007. It’s located next to the Basílica de San Francisco el Grande, close to the La Latina neighborhood. I happened to discover this garden by chance, after visiting the Basílica de San Francisco. I didn’t even know it existed beforehand.
With an area of 4,000 square meters, you’ll see that the dahlia gardens are really part of a complex landscape surrounding the basilica and that the lower section is known as Cornisa park.
