This “Garden of the Poets” was fostered in 1956 by Joaquín Romero Murube and drawn by Javier Winthuysen, Sevillian landscaper whose creations came to the gardens of Villandry. It is organized around a sheet of water that continues recreating typologically that archetype which is the Seville garden, synthesis of Islamic, Renaissance and Romantic influences, that both intellectuals helped to consolidate.
Flanked by cypress trees, its vegetation of classic scent combines hedges arbovitaes, acanthus, orange and roses.
The name of the garden refers to the literary group of the generation of 27, of which Joaquín Romero Murube was a member, who transformed this place into a meeting place for poets such as Federico García Lorca, Juan Ramón Jiménez, Luis Cernuda and Vicente Aleixandre. Even after the war of 1936, it seems to have been an ephemeral refuge of the poet Miguel Hernández, who impersonated as a gardener.
