Whiule walking the paths through the garden you will find a lot of references and quotations from the Bible, all attractively laid out among the diverse vegetation. Here you can see such a menorah made of boxwood, stone tablets with the commandments next to the bloody blackberries, on the other hand, in the Promised Land: an olive tree, fig, pomegranate, date palm, oak, cistus, myrtle, carob and others.
