Gardens of the Campo del Moro and the Royal Palace
Paseo Virgen del Puerto, s/n.
28005 Madrid (Madrid)
It is located between the Manzanares River and the Royal Palace. It possibly owes its name to the fact that it was the site of a camp established by the Muslim armies who laid siege to Madrid between 1100 and 1200. It has been the scene of hunting parties, jousts and tournaments, as well as serving as a route to the Casa de Campo parklands. The Campo del Moro does not date from the same period as the new palace –today known as the Oriente Palace; the gardens did not come into existence until the late 19th century.
