While waiting for the Museum of Art Nouveau and Art Deco to open I walked around the corner to a door in the wall. Such a beautiful garden, just behind the Cathedral in Salamanca and overlooking the river, a tranquil spot away from the busy tourist spots.
It is a formal garden with beds of flowers, roses, sweet william, oyster plants with formal boxes edges. Lots of mature trees.
But look again.
The trees include a quince, olive, pear, apricot, pomegranate and fig.
In the garden beds, amongst the flowers, were thyme, cabbages, silverbeet, artichokes, tomatoes, raspberries and zucchinis. And of course a grape vine.
