Puerta Oscura Gardens Below Alcazaba in Málaga, Spain

A scenic descent from Gibralfaro Hill is through Puerta Oscura Gardens. The translation is Dark Door Gardens. This seems like an odd moniker for such lovely terraced landscaping. The origin is the name of a former gate into the southern side of the Alcazaba. Among the ramps, staircases and a stone esplanade are fountains and pavilions. They are embraced by abundant plants, flower beds and a variety of trees.
