That's a very nice garden! I like how they incorporate archatecture into the garden as well- It's not just grass and palms. It looks like a very interesting place!

What is that palm in the third post, second picture down- is it some kind of Sabal?

Thanks for the pictures. I love seeing what other countries look like. That panoramic is great!

Excellent palms Carlo but just an itsy bitsy comment on those columns (including the "broken" one - a nice touch actually)

I appreciate those are concrete but as a scaper I would have aged them and I also think those ladies were somewhat overdressed for the truly Classical look!

I am  familiar with the classical orders of architecture but I could only see one Capital: is that supposedly Corinthian?

Good to see Bases but a might too large for the scale IMO.

Personally I would have kept it to one of the simple Orders and gone for the Doric Order or better still the  Tuscan for nothing can beat the splendour of the palms themselves.

Only being ultra fussy (well it is a Monday!) - thats still a Very nice garden indeed.

Patrick I think it isn`t a sabal, is a Copernicia alba.

Bilbo, I don`t know if the architecture is Corinthian, but I can say you  there are four Italian marble statues that symbolize the stations of the year, complemented with another series of distributed marble statues in diverse points, among them the one of the “Goddess of the fertility” and those of two impressive lions, both of Italian marble.

Carlo the garden was designed by municipal technician D. Manuel Simón and was opened to the public in the spring of 2003, there are about 90 species of palms, is one of the three gardens public of  Spain, containg more species of palms growing outside.

Some more pictures:

Ray, I forgot to say you the Syagrus is not botryphora, is amara.

That's great to see such a range of palms unprotected on mainland Europe.  I know the area has amongst the mildest winters in Europe, but it's still good to see.

Must also apologise for mistaking genuine marble for concrete. My only excuse is that theres ever such a lot of the latter around  some looking quite realistic at a distance.

Carlo, It is wonderful to know that such a marvellous garden exists in Spain.  What a feat of beauty and serenity.  I only wish a public palm garden of this caliber existed in the Algarve as well!

Hi Carlo : Iam on a diet of humble pie and next time we meet the beers are on me!

What on earth is that contraption around the base of that palm???

I am supposedly an expert on underground guying and can do the lot from concrete raft to dead man and deep earth anchor and some: so please put me out of my misery!
