The Alameda Gardens were established on the 14th April 1816. They were the brainchild of Lieutenant-Governor General Sir George Don, who planned the Alameda as part of more extensive reforms to improve living conditions on the Rock. Monuments and artefacts around the gardens remind us of their age and the Rock’s military and social history. By the end of the 19th Century, the Alameda had developed into a beautiful and well-known garden. This continued during the first half of the 20th Century, after which the gardens fell into a state of neglected. The Gibraltar Botanic Gardens were established in 1991 and the Alameda has been beautifully restored. It now holds thousands of plants from around the world.
