Don’t ever miss this spot if you ever go to Spain. These gardens are also called as art forms of landscape. It is a very beautiful place situated very high on a plateau. There are the Sierra Nevada Mountains nearby. The garden belongs to the 13th century. Previously the same place was filled with orchards and green pastures. Over a period of time they have evolved into a very beautiful place filled with rose and lily flowers and also pools. It is a celebration to your senses if you just sit and stare at the beauty of the nature there. Just enjoy the pleasant beauty of the greenery with chirping birds and smells of flowers. You have to get your tickets in advance.

It is a very beautiful place to spend time in the morning and appreciate the nature’s beauty. The gardens look royal. They date back to the 17th century and have been transformed. It started as a small garden and later on developed into a big one. There are also statues of those Greek-Gods and also large ponds. There are a large variety of plants and also birds like swans. It can make a very good picnic spot with the family. You will really enjoy that place and if you plan your trip well you can cover a major portion of it in less time.

Monet’s garden in France

It is a very beautiful place connected to the village of Giverny. The gardens are near Claude Monet’s mansion and he really made them beautiful. There are beautiful flowers which are colorful and also ponds which make the place a serene one and a peaceful one. There is also a flower garden along with a water garden. The sights and sounds of the place are very pleasant and any visitor going there will carry the memories for a life time. Man had always been in love with nature as it makes him forget about all the trivial things of his life. It really is a big break from the rest of your life’s commitments and it refreshes you a lot. Also make sure you visit the village.

Villa Ephrussi de Rothschild, France

There are a lot many gardens in Europe which are very beautiful and stunning. Listing only a five from those is really difficult. Also seeing all those gardens in a single trip is very difficult and is impossible as there are so many things to be seen and every garden is a vast thing in itself and anyone who goes there cannot come out without spending much time inside. Travelling there is worth it as you will feel the pleasure of enjoying the nature. If you go there with your family your family with thank you for showing such a pleasant spot. The main beauty of those places is that the gardens are preserved from centuries and the landscaping is done almost like an art. The flowers are like decorations and chirping of birds in the garden makes it more beautiful. If a person is a nature lover then this place is almost a heaven to him. If you can take some time out of your busy schedule, then do not think about where to travel. I would recommend these places for anyone who is looking to come back refreshed from a tour or a holiday. Happy journey!

    agrees in most part with the above list but can’t believe the Monte Palace Tropical Gardens in Madiera haven’t made the cut…. 😉 and none from Ireland either…? 😉

    best wishes

    A hard list to compile. May I suggest Mount Congreve in Waterford

  3. OrugTor

    Good list. The photos don’t do justice to the gardens.Very difficult to choose what to include. There are many Generalife-like gardens in Spain attached to alcazars that might have substituted for the Generalife. One of the London parks (Regent’s, St. James…) might have made the cut.

    Quite a few missing here …. what about the gardens of Menton … Val Rahmeh; Trebah in Cornwall; Longwood Gardens, USA?

  5. Allaiyah

    A lovely website which I enjoyed very much. While the pictures are thoroughly proffesional the text could use some more fine tuning. The writer is making a large effort to be sure, and definately shows promise. If they intend to persue proffesional writing. I suggest they do as much reading themselves of actual literature, not pop literature, newspapers or magazines of any kind. I am not well enough educated to be able to suggest specific items off the top of my head, so to speak. The content is very good. I find and many real writers say that time spent polishing it is the trick. Overall very enjoyable.
