About this book

Acclaimed writer/photgrapher team Anneli Bojstad and Eduardo Mencos look at 40 of Spain's most beautiful gardens. Large and small, historical and contemporary, classical and modern, the gardens are all very different, reflecting the diversity of Spain's climate and landscape, from the moist, green north to the dry, hot Mediterranean south. All are among the most beautiful gardens to be found in Spain today, as over 200 stunning colour photographs reveal. And all are open to the public.
