Gardens at the Fundación Rodríguez-Acosta

Rodríguez-Acosta Foundation


The Carmen (traditional house with enclosed garden) of the Rodríguez-Acosta Foundation could be the prime exponent in Spain of collaboration between art and nature. It is the work of Granada painter José María Rodríguez-Acosta, and uses the local tradition of “carmen” houses to create a unique setting that is a living portrait of his tastes and personality. The garden has several different terraces looking out over Granada’s fertile plain and the Sierra Nevada Mountains. Fragments of walls and columns in pure Modernist style interplay with cypress hedges.
