Caixa Forum, Paseo del Prado, Madrid, Spain



Vertical Gardens are popping up everywhere.  Many are planted where space is a premium.   This one is located near the Prado Museum in Madrid, Spain.  

We had read about it in advance and made sure to tailor our walking route in order to include this beauty.

The variety of plant material makes this vertical garden particularly beautiful.  Thousands of plants create the outstanding depths and color shadings of this evergreen garden.



This little plaza is now a park.  Benches, musicians, and a coffee shop next door named Vertical Café, make this a pleasant spot to spend some time.
