  Rose Garden
by Sonador3

Also known as the "Garden of the Rose Bushes", El Rosedal was created in 1914 and is located in the Parque de 3 February. By 1994 the garden was in pretty bad shape, so a total reconstruction was in order. The resulting garden was over 34,000sq m and contained 1,189 different species of roses and resulting in over 14,600 rose bushes. Pretty amazing, and even when I was there in the late fall there were quite a number still in bloom.

A nice story is that the engineers who helped plant the rose bushes were each given buds by the lead engineer for them to take home and plant. Along the walk around the garden is the Poet's Garden with busts of famous poets. Also you'll find the Andalusian Patio, which was donated by the Sevilla Town Hall in 1929.
