The Monforte gardens were declared "Artistic Gardens" in 1941. They consist of a lush enclave located close to the top of Vicente Blasco Ibañez Avenue. Inside there is an abundancy of marble statues, small ponds and fountains, which together create a beautiful neoclassical landscape. The gardens are so named for the second owners. After the garden´s creator, the Marquis de San Juan, died, the gardens passed into the Monforte family's hands, and so it was christened. In order to enter the garden you have to enter through the small palace called the "Pabellón de Recreo" (Recreation Pavilion), which is notable for its architecture, matching the style of the garden.
