El jardín Grande, Casa de Pilatos, Sevilla
In the garden of a 15th-century palace that combines late-medieval Gothic and Mudejar style with the innovations of the Renaissance, you’ll find ‘ the Big Garden’. First a palace orchard, with the arrival of the Renaissance it was converted into an archaeological garden with eleven symmetrical flowerbeds surrounding a central fountain. The most interesting plants of the garden are Madagascar Jasmine, an ancient Magnolia and a pergola covered by climbing roses.
Declared a Unesco Heritage site in 1984, the Generalife is one of the oldest surviving Moorish gardens. Built during the reign of Muhmmad III in the 13th century, the name of the garden comes from the Arabic Jannat al-’Arif, meaning Architect’s Garden. It was conceived as a resting place for Muslim royalty.
