Cypress, palms, pines and other Mediterranean species of evergreen shrubs and flowering shrubs, flower pots and colorful flower beds give the visitor the impression that he was in the Garden of Eden. No shortage of conifers, hedges, short of the border plants, cacti, trees and ornamental trees. Although it was billed as a formal garden, it is complex. The middle and right paths are formal elements, while the space outside them is like wild garden, so with informal elements. This is cause for which the garden is so well integrated into the landscape.
