The alleys in the park will lead you to the world’s only palace with a minaret and next to it - in a complete harmony - a dome
of a Christian church, a marble throne brought over from Florence, the Bridge of Sighs, large earthen jars from Morocco, a
deep draw well in a Mediterranean style, and a pool, combining the Roman with the Moorish style in decorative art.
A legend says that Queen Maria was so strongly attracted to this place that she wished to remain here even after her death.
When she died, her heart was placed in a special container and put in one of the clocks in the park, guarded round the clock.
