The Garden of the Friars and the Gallery of Convalescents

Outside, the Garden of the Friars, El Jardín de los Frailes, and the Gallery of Convalescents, Galería de convalecientes, stand out. Felipe II was a great nature lover and so the Jardín de los Frailes is an ample garden, containing a dozen green parterres around an equal number of small ponds, each with a water fountain at their centre. These gardens, in the most northern end, are crowned by one of the more beautiful architectural features, the Galería de Convalecientes, located between the Infirmary and the Pharmacy Tower, which is placed upon a set of Doric columns forming a right angle.
