A Carmen Garden in the Albaicin in Granada

Granada, in southern Spain,  is of course most famous for the Alhambra and Generalife gardens.  But throughout the old town of Granada are also many walled gardens known as “carmen” This particular one featured here is on the hill of the Albaicin, the Moorish quarter and oldest part of Granada. It is laid out in somewhat formal squares but with a wide variety of planting giving it color throughout the seasons. The view alone would make this an absolutely stunning garden to sit and linger in.
