History of the Garden of L'Albarda
Enrique Montoliu founded the garden in 1990 in a place where there was nothing in the 80s. After visiting gardens in his travels around the world, Montoliu plant a beautiful Mediterranean garden. The houses that Montoliu saw as a child in towns such as Alzira or Carcaixent inspire the garden house. Initially, his idea was to create a private garden, but as time went on, he continued to expand. Finally, he decided to open this space to the visitors so that everyone could visit this wonderful place.
