La Granja de San Ildefonso

La Granja de San Ildefonso
Picture of the gardens of the royal palace of La Granja de San Ildefonso
Date: Sep-2008
Camera: Sony DSC-H5
Comments: With an area of six miles, the gardens surrounding the palace and are one of the best examples of garden design of the eighteenth century in Europe. They were designed by the French gardener René Carlier, who used the natural slope of the hills surrounding the palace as an aid to visual perspective and as an energy source to bring out the water from each of the twenty-six monumental fountains that decorate the park. The sources are inspired by classical mythology, including gods, allegories and mythological scenes. Were built in lead to prevent corrosion, but painted in imitation of bronze to ennoble them.
