Gardens of Portugal and Spain


Saturday, May 1 through Saturday, May 14, 2022

Andalucia…the name alone invokes images of flaming red flamenco dresses, dark eyes peeking over a lacy fan, bullfighters in pink satin trousers, graceful Moorish architecture and white-washed villages. And it is also a destination that hosts a stunning array of gardens, thanks to the influence of Persia, the Romans and the Moorish influence of the Al Andalus era. Beautifully incorporating fountains and pools, along with pergolas and arcades to create shade, the gardens here provide a fabulous sensory experience of refreshing coolness, humidity, sounds, greenery, and fragrance.

Join JC Raulston Arboretum host Mark Weathington as we journey to the endlessly fascinating country of Spain…and we 're throwing in a little Lisbon for fun! This colorful and cultural experience will not only take us to the beautiful gardens in Portugal and Spain, it will also include tastings of local culinary specialties and wine, spectacular architectural, a flamenco performance, the famous prancing horses of Jerez and historic gardens and palaces.
