Re: How old is this?
Thanks again for the firsthand look, Pablo! Very interesting. It's great to see cities make it possible for folk to stop and rest in hotter climes.

Re: How old is this?
Mary, the gardens are just outside the Medina, the old city, next to the Royal Palace. Basically is a modern garden with very old trees. I don't know when the fountain was built, but looks modern.

The gardens are a nice place to visit after spending a few days in the Medina, where trees are scarce and the streets very narrow. It is a place to walk, rest and escape the crazy activity in the city.

How old is this?
Great glimpse of a city I haven't had any experience or knowledge of, Pablo. Thanks!

I can't say I like the look of this fountain. But I wonder, is it a heritage item? Or is it a relatively new structure?
