HISTORY

In Stretch 7, the municipal garden center’s woodland was located, and part of it is maintained currently. The vegetation is varied, from fruit trees such as bitter orange (Citrus aurantium) to typical gardening trees as jacaranda (Jacaranda mimosifolia) rosewood (Tipuanatipu) brachyquitum (Kurrajong), sausage (Chorisiaspeciosa), Judas tree (Cercissiliquastrum), silky oak (Grevillearobusta); besides woods of Canarian pine (Pinuscanariensis), palm (Chamaeropshumilis) and date palms (Phoenix dactylifera).

A diagonal made of palms connects the lines of sight between two monumental buildings: St. Pius V Fine Arts Museum, National Museum of Painting, and the Monastery of the Temple, a conventual complex reused as the Civil Government’s seat retaining the church.

In Stretch 8 there are plantations from public Arbor Day campaigns. In its route we discover a landscape fruit of randomness of plant layout with winding paths for walking. Among the most common tree vegetation, we have broad-leaf privets (Ligustrum lucidum), black poplars (Populus nigra), chorisiasetc. and herbaceous vegetation carpeting the floor.
