Jardin Del Príncipe De Anglona is a secret garden even the locals don’t seem to know about. Behind a high wall is a beautiful garden, a peaceful and tranquil place to relax and pause from the daily hustle.
The sense of quiet order, from the beautiful brick herringbone pattern in the floor to the perfectly clipped box hedges, adds to the sense of calm.
Charming features such as the fountain, the trellis and lighting add to the character of the garden.
Large trees provide dappled shade on the garden below, a staple in the southern Spanish green spaces.
