Mallorca / Port de Sóller: Jardins d'Alfàbia
Jardins d'Alfàbia is a beautiful garden located in Bunyola, a small town in the northwest of Mallorca, Spain. The garden was built in the 13th century by the Arab conquerors of the island and it was later expanded and modified by various owners over the centuries.
The garden features a variety of plants, including fruit trees, palms, cypress, and other Mediterranean vegetation. The garden is divided into different sections, each with its own unique features, such as a lily pond, a citrus garden, and a series of terraces with fountains and water features. There are also numerous sculptures and ornaments scattered throughout the garden.
One of the most notable features of the garden is the ancient irrigation system, which is still used today to irrigate the plants. Visitors can learn about the history of the garden and its irrigation system through guided tours and informational signs.
The Jardins d'Alfàbia is a popular tourist attraction and is open to the public for most of the year, except for the winter months when it is closed for maintenance.
