Vizcaya - Miami, Florida

This Fountain Garden, a large circular area crossed by canals fed by jets of water and having as its central feature an impressive Baroque fountain brought from an Italian town near Rome.

The great formal gardens are unique on this continent as a large scale creation in the Italian spirit.  They are conceived as architecture, a vast outdoor living room enclosed by hedges and walls, combining the green of trees and clipped shrubs with statues, stately urns and shady grottos.
