Ever wished you could wake up to the sound of birds chirping rather than the sound of the alarm clock? Walk along the beautifully paved stone streets watching beautiful houses not the lifeless commercial buildings? Spend a lazy afternoon sipping coffee while reading your favorite book under an umbrella in front of a local coffee shop rather than preparing for the next meeting? If your heart dreams of such, it means only one thing, which is that you need a break from your busy life. It is time to pack your bags and go for an adventure.
If you are planning to spend a day in the midst of lush and green then Royal Botanical Garden is the place to go. Like an oasis in the middle of a desert, this park is a piece of nature in the midst of a busy city. The 20 acres of garden is the place where you will come across marvelous numbers of plants, trees, flowers and shrubs. A recent study shows that the garden has about 1,500 trees and 30,000 plants and flowers. Along with that, parts of the garden are dedicated to fruit plants, vegetables and herb plants. One of the best features of the garden is that plants and trees from five continents can be found there. The best time to visit the garden is spring time, when it is filled with color.
If you want to take a walk down memory lane and get some history lessons, then Atocha station is the place to go. Apparently that was Spain's first rail way station. Unfortunately the station was somewhat ruined 10 years after it was built. Thus, it was reconstructed in 18920. The reconstructed station is much bigger than the original structure. During the reconstruction of the station, the old part of the station was converted into a place where people can rest.
