Parks and Gardens Tips (12)

Marbella's Roman Ruins

Favorite thing Stacey took us to see this Roman ruin near Marbella (no it is NOT in the city center, it is located in one of the outlying suburbs). It was closed when we arrived, it has never been open for viewing inside it looked like, there were no paths or opening hours posted. But you can see in the last photo how Stacey and I did view the mosaics...
The main, or central motiv appears to be either an emperor, or if you have a more vivid imagination it could be Medusa...

BIRD - OF - PARADISE FLOWER

Favorite thing SO BEAUTIFUL! SO EXOTIC!
A wonderful combination of a distinctive shape and brilliant colours, BIRD - OF - PARADISE FLOWER is a large tropical herb that is a member of Musaleae or the Banana Family. Native to South Africa, the Flower's scientific name is Strelitzia Reginae. It requires a good amount of sunlight and definitely a tropical temperature.
The plant itself can reach up to 5 feet in height. The name "Bird - of - Paradise" comes from the spectacular flower shape which resembles a birds beak and head plumage. The numerous pointed petals of brilliant orange , contrast with an arrow-shaped tongue of vivid blue.

Fondest memory I simply had to include this beautiful flower in my pages, as I absolutely love these flowers. We only get to see them in a greenhouse that grow tropical flowers.

PARQUE DE LA ALAMEDA

Favorite thing If you walk along the Avenida Del Mar, you will come to Marbella's "Central Park" which is PARQUE DE LA ALAMEDA. It really is an amazing place, with its fountains, sculptures, tropical flowers like jasmines and bouganvilleas and gardens, exotic flora and fauna. Hans and I, along with Carmen and Stace strolled through this beautiful park which runs along Avenida Ramon y Cajal and is halfway between Paseo Maritimo and Old Town.
Its fountain Fuente Virgen Del Rocio was the meeting place for our recent VT Meeting.

PARQUE DE LA ALAMEDA

Favorite thing Another great thing about the Parque de la Alameda is that it is so user friendly. Many locals and tourists alike were enjoying the early evening air in a wonderful park setting. The walkways are marble and weave in and out ot the tropical trees and foliage. And when you just want to sit and relax, there are these wonderful tiled park benches that Hans and I are putting to good use.

PARQUE DE LA ALAMEDA

Favorite thing As you stroll through the Parque de la Alameda, you will come across many sculptures. This one of a lady surfing was once located in the beach area, I was told.
Notice the tropical plants and the absolutely wonderful "Birds of Paradise" surrounding the sculpture.

Supension Bridge and Park

Favorite thing Carmen had to park her car some way from the town centre, and we walked through this attractive park, with its magnificent suspension bridge flying over the top. Carmen did say something about the bridge, how it was modelled from another, somewhere in the world, but on a smaller scale. I'll try to find more details later.

Some details I found about this bridge: Structural Type: Cable-stayed bridge. A-pylon, inclined pylon, semi-fan arrangement . Built: 1989
