About Spanish Paradise
A high point in the world’s art, architecture, gardens, and culture, the Alhambra is a 14th-century monument that presents landscape architecture as an art form, incorporating architecture, gardens, and gateways in one of the world’s commanding citadels and most spectacular settings. The exhibition features flowing fountains, elegant arches, and a broad palette of Old World plants anchored by date palms, pomegranate trees, Italian cypress, and more—all within the Victorian elegance of the Conservatory.
