What a beautiful and special oasis. Tucked between modern apartment blocks this is a surprising retreat. We were lucky to be the only visitors so had the whole garden to ourselves. Very well maintained, some awesome views down trellised walkways of bougainvilleas, across manicured hedges and classical statues, and onto ponds and small gardens. There's a ruin folly to climb...

This is a fairly small ornamental garden hidden away near the Museum of Fine Arts (Belles Artes) and the Royal Gardens (Jardin Real). It's lovely with well-tended displays of roses, climbing plants on an extensive pergola and mature and interesting species of trees. There are plenty of benches to sit on, usually strategically placed in the shade. There is a... More

Up the way from the Jardines de Real, this is a wonderful calm oasis in the city. Only about an acre in size, nevertheless the arches, beds, statues and trees blend well together. Take a Kit-Kat and have a deserved break. More than a few kissing couples hidden in the undergrowth.

These historic gardens are as simple and elegant as any you can find in a residential area. The adjacent building is used for civil weddings. Many brides and grooms come to the gardens for their pictures as the setting is very romantic with trellises and arches of flowers and cypress trees throughout the many sections. If you have trouble finding... More

This garden is small but it sure looks great! Plus is well maintained! I used to come here with friends just to walk around or have lunch. If you are in Valencia with enough time you should visit! It's pretty here!!

Not many people know this garden, hidden a stone's throw from the old river bed. Small, leafy, cool. Well cared for and decorated with plenty of lovely statues. Not a place you would drive a long way to visit, but if you're nearby, well worth a visit.

Probably the smallest, but definitely the most beautiful gardens in Valencia. Orange trees, flowers, water features, statues and beautifully trimmed hedges. It's a haven of tranquility. It is free admission and there are no toilet facilities. Take a book, find a bench shaded by an orange tree and just relax.
