Royal Gardens, in Spanish “Jardines del Real”, are also known as “Jardín de Viveros“. It’s one of the many parks in Valencia. It is another main garden of Valencia because of its beauty and its historical past. It is also known for being one of the most romantic places of Valencia. The name “Jardín de Viveros”, in English “Garden Centre”, did not spread until 1903 when it was transformed from tree nursery to garden.
In 1801 a building located in the Royal Gardens was demolished during the War of Independence, but some of its fragments were preserved and are kept in the Archives of Valencia Kingdom.
The Royal Gardens was formerly home to Valencia Zoo until 2007, when it closed to make way for Bioparc.
