The gardens of the Alcázar stand on the site of the former vegetable gardens of the Alcázar, which were surrounded by the walls of the fortress. They were supplied with water from the river via a complex irrigation system.
This historical area was reduced when the Avenue of the Alcazar was built around the middle of the 20th century. Another change was carried out in the western area in the first decades of the 20th Century, leaving an enclosure close to the West Wall which was connected to the Royal Stables.
The current Gardens of the Alcázar were formed around the middle of the 20th century.
The gardens are divided into three different levels, all of them housing fountains and big pools, as well as a rich variety of native flora. The garden's borders have changed throughout history and its current appearance differs a lot from the original one, as the planimetry and appearance of the Royal Stables' West Wall show.
During a visit to the gardens, visitors will find several sculptures, among them the one representing the meeting between the Catholic Monarchs, Isabel and Fernando, and Christopher Columbus.
