Patio de Lindaraja
The Patio de Lindaraja (Court de Lindaraja) – also known as the Jardines de Daraxa (Garden of Daraxa) – is a quadrilateral-shaped patio enclosing a lovely garden on all four sides. Each side has a portico with arched columns made of marble and a gallery upstairs. This image was captured from one of the galleries.

At the center of the garden is a beautiful marble fountain, which dates back to 1626, and the basin was first at the Patio del Cuarto Dorado (Patio of the Gilded Room). The garden has several pentagon-shaped hedges of bushes and tall trees, including cypress, orange, and acacia.

The Mirador de Lindaraja provides a beautiful view from above of this garden through its two viewing windows.
