The Alameda Garden, in Gibraltar, was founded in 1816 by the governor of Gibraltar as a place of recreation for its residents. The name "Alameda," is Spanish for "tree lined boulevard." It covers an area of fifteen acres and displays a collection of plants from Mediterranean climates around the world.
In the early days, the park was used as a graveyard, so if you visit, take the time to read the markers.
The garden is open from 8 AM until dusk. Admission is free.
