Beyond the formal gardens with parterres there are avenues and woods. Inside the avenues and higher up the hillside the trees seem freer. I loved these areas which were less controlled and where I could just enjoy the trees in the gardens of La Granja.
The Eight Avenues at La Granja
Woodlands at La Granja
There are trees on either side of the avenues, particularly in the higher level of the gardens and alongside the Parterre of Fame. The trees are mainly oak trees, and pine trees, limes, chestnuts, elms, ash, hornbeams and poplars.
There are formal avenues and woods at La Granja which offer hours of walking. But it is the trees higher up the hillside which seem freer and more open. Nevertheless the gardens as a whole are wonderful.
