The Huerto Del cura is a recognized landmark in the whole region. Species such as myrtles, jasmines, geranium, bamboo, yuccas, hibiscus or rubber plants live and share the same environment in total harmony contributing to the beauty and culture of the garden.
The particular area of the Huerto which is captured in the panorama is known as La Rocalla (Rocky Area). This area has a wide range of cactuses which were given or purchased by the owners since the fifties and have gradually been introduced into this location inside the Huerto.The cactuses, rocks and ponds which make up this rocky area give it an exotic touch. Note the turtles basking in the sun ontop of the rocks by the pond.
The Huerto Del cura is a significant symbol of the city and a great attraction as it gathers tourists from all over. It is a place where one can quietly and peacefully interact with and truly appreciate the beauty of nature.
I would like to thank Don Francisco Orts Serrano and Don Manuel A. Mas Mas for giving us access to the Huerto and allowing us to take the panoramas as well as providing us with information about the Huertos History.
