Rare prints, historical photographs, watercolor drawings, and objects from the rich collections of the Hispanic Society of America immerse visitors in the Alhambra's history and design.
The exhibition features flowing fountains, elegant arches, and a broad palette of Mediterranean plants anchored by date palms, pomegranate trees, Italian cypress, and more--all within the Victorian elegance of the Conservatory.
The spirit of al-Andalús fills the Garden's special programming this summer. Eat the food, drink the wine, and thrill to the sounds of Spanish guitar during weekend Flamenco performances, evening events, and much more.
