Major improvement work brings Nasrid gardens back into Bloom


THE Nasrid-style gardens at the Municipal Pottery Centre in Almuñecar have undergone a series of major improvement works.

Environment Councillor Luis Aragon said some of the aromatic plants have been replaced, including sage, thyme, rosemary, myrtle, basil and mint, as well as the rose bushes, the geraniums, orange, mandarin and lemon trees. “We have also improved the fountains and the benches,” Councillor Aragon said.

Located on Calle San Crescencio in Barrio San Miguel del Castillo, the Municipal Pottery Centre is open to the public from 10am until 1pm.


The Nasrid dynasty ruled the Emirate of Granada from 1232 and 1492 and was the last Muslim dynasty in Spain until Muhammad XII of Granada surrendered to Aragon and Castile. The Alhambra in Granada was built during their rule in the ninth century.
