Next to the Turia Gardens are the Royal Gardens, also known as the Nursery Gardens. These are some of the oldest gardens in Valencia, dating hundreds of years back. Unfortunately the Royal Palace that once stood here was destroyed during the Spanish War of Independence. Today, the Royal Gardens are the ideal place to relax in the sun and have fun.
The Royal Gardens are situated next to the Fine Arts Museum and host a small artificial lake with ducks, swans (including black swans) and peacocks.
