There are three small gardens in Palma, right on the sea shore, that are perfect for a pleasant walk or a place to rest during a sightseeing tour.
The Gardens of Nazareth, located on the Paseo Maritimo; a Mediterranean garden laid out like a labyrinth, narrow paths and benches hide behind the walls. The bougainvillea climbing the walls fosters the feel of an abandoned fortress. The park is accessed through a gate and the different paths lead to a lookout point.
Just 300m away, heading towards Palma Centre, we find Sa Quarentena park, its name refers to the old building where travellers arriving from lands known for infectious diseases were held in isolation. The park still has two doors that access the isolation clinic. It is laid out on a hill. If we enter from the top, C/Real Patrimoni, we can enjoy great views of the harbour, the sailing ships and the loading docks.
L’Hort del Rei, at the foot of the Almudaina was created by the Kings of Mallorca but has experienced drastic changes. Originally it sat next to the sea and the mouth of the Riera Torrent. It boasts fountains and sculptures from famous artists such as “Jónica”, a marble sculpture, or the kinetic sculpture “Nancy”.
