Garden routes

There is a great diversity of styles of gardens to be found in Andalusia, despite the fact that a large number of gardens have been lost to us in the course of history. The majority of these gardens are found in the cities, but there are also interesting examples on country estates and farms.

The oldest remains date to the Roman period, but the oldest conserved gardens are from the Caliphate period in the 8th century. Examples can be seen from each of the subsequent periods up to the present day, all influenced by the distinctive Andalusian sensibility.

The great variety of climates in the region, influencing the design of gardens and the elements used in them, has been a determining factor in the profusion of styles and variety of species found today. As a result, we can see everything from exuberant gardens with an abundance of exotic species on the Mediterranean coast, to the extreme sobriety of the Renaissance gardens and courtyards found inland.

The most typical forms of gardens in Andalusia are its courtyards and a mixture of decorative and vegetable gardens from the Spanish-Muslim tradition.

The custom of keeping potted plants, both shaded and flowering, in courtyards, windows and balconies, is also worthy of mention.
