This small garden, considered the best in the town, hides a beautiful past behind its name. The place is enclosed behind closed doors and walls, an old laundry room, shadows between trees and vegetation and an old modernist temple, all bequeathed by Doña Carmen Pérez, wife of the former Italian philosopher Attilio Bruschetti.
