Stroll the cobblestone paths of Alfabia Gardens, an oasis of greenery that surrounds an estate dating to the 13th century. An official Cultural Heritage Site, the gardens contain rare species from all over the world. While meandering about, you may see pomegranate trees with twisted trunks, Indian horse chestnuts, Spanish firs and the Queen’s Garden, an enchanting greenspace redesigned for Isabella II’s visit in the mid-19th century. Even so, the highlight may be the 72-column pergola adorned with dozens of sculptures and concealed jets that shoot graceful arcs of water through the air. Following a leisurely lunch in the gardens, you will visit Bellver Castle, a spectacular Gothic landmark from the 14th century. Its round design is unusual among Spanish castles and the seemingly impenetrable fortress is just as fascinating inside. As you ramble about the hilltop castle, you will appreciate the origin of its name Bellver, which means “lovely view” in Catalan.
