Granada, in southern Spain, is of course most famous for the Alhambra and Generalife gardens. The patios of the Alhambra are iconic images of Granada and the best known gardens are those of the Generalife, the vacation palace on the other side of the Alhambra complex.
In the vast complex of palaces that is the Alhambra, this former monastery has been converted into one of the Paradors, Spain’s government-owned luxury hotels set in historic landmarks. In addition to the Alhambra gardens it overlooks, the Parador has its own gardens with a distinctly Mediterranean feel to them and lush plantings of lavender, rosemary, roses and irises.

Lucky you if you stayed here, Granada has so much to offer. Thank you for deciding to follow my Hesperides Garden, you are very welcome.
Granada is a fantastic city, and not just for gardens, but the Generalife and ALhambra are truly some of the most beautiful gardens I have seen anywhere. The gardens of the Alcazar in Sevilla are also up there.
