The Garden Fontana Rosa : Playwright and novelist Vicente Blasco-Ibañez created this garden in 1921. It is ornamented with Spanish style tiled elements, and dedicated to the great authors' memory. This ”Writers' Garden” has been classified as a protected monument in 1990. It is designed as a reading space, honouring the creator's favourite writers: Flaubert, Balzac, Dickens, Dostoevsky and Cervantes.
This charming site, where grand ficus and palm trees thrive next to tiled benches, pergolas, basins and columns, is being restored today.
