Jardines de Murillo, Seville

Seville, Spain, Europe: The Columbus Monument stands amidst the banyan tree in the Jardines de Murillo in Seville.
Calle Jardines de Murillo
Barrio Santa Cruz
Spain 41004's insider take:

Just a hop, skip, and salto from major tourist stops and watering holes, the Murillo Gardens are easy to recommend, yet often overlooked. The park, hidden behind the Alcázar palace walls, is essentially a backyard for the maze of alleys that form the endlessly explorable Barrio Santa Cruz. The gardens are named for a famous son of the city, Baroque painter Bartolomé Esteban Murillo, yet their calling card is a striking statue honoring another major player in Seville history, Christopher Columbus. Though the monument merits a look for its odd rendering of Columbus' Santa Maria impaled on a pair of towering columns, it is the park's quieter charms that are worth lingering for: the palms, colossal banyans, and tile-edged gardens, walkways, benches, and fountains. With backdoor access to some of the Barrio's less traveled, most atmospheric plazas and patios, this is a shady spot to contemplate the picturesque present and charged history of the neighborhood, centuries ago Seville's Jewish quarter. The gardens are also a handy escape for families with kids maxing out on culture or cobblestones.—Patricia Reilly
