The Nazarí Garden in Vélez de Benaudalla (Granada) is an exceptional example of Islamic garden of great historic value, enhanced by the fact that this is one of the very few gardens preserved in Andalucía (Granada’s Generalife being the greatest exponent of this art). Many professionals in this field consider the Garden of Vélez de Benaudalla the second most important of its kind, as it is now known as “Generalife Chico” (Small Generalife).
