Overview

Not far from the sea one will find this wonderful Italian garden in the form of a square with geometric patterns of concentric lines, originally designed by Nicolò Palma and later enlarged in 1866. Palermo's first public garden, it was named after Giulia Guevara, the wife of the Spanish Viceroy. Its elegant neoclassical exedras in niches decorate its central square, developed around a fountain. Also remarkable are the busts of illustrious Palermitani that line the paths.
