Description

These gardens were made around 1910-1915 in an Andalusian farmhouse belonging to the Marquis of Viana, with the aim of turning it into a place for recreation and starting point to go hunting. The gardens were designed by J. C. N. Forestier and they integrate the French style into the Neo-Seville style that he created. A large avenue runs between the façade of the House-Palace and the ornamental entrance gate, and is made up of seven slightly sunken boulingrins. There are several fanciful motifs, such as fountains, benches and tables, serpentine paths, etc., made of brick and tiles. The rest of the green area has a more intimist style, slight romantic, wooded and shady.
