Gardens of La Palomera
The Garden of Isabel Cristina

The beautiful garden that Isabel inherited from her mother preserves a hundred-year-old cardon tree at the entrance of the house. Isabel is a teacher and helps children with their homework. Inside, the house shelters an oasis of plants that includes orchids, roses, pomegranates, bromeliads, calla lilies, ferns and other species.Isabel lives in a beautiful house on Páez Avenue in Baruta. In the main entrance there is a huge cardon, a cactus of almost 3 meters high that has been planted there for more than 100 years. Upon entering the house, the first thing that greets us is the peacefulness of Isabel's garden. It has a very loaded pomegranate tree and some ferns that give a very fresh atmosphere to the space. Isabel's love for plants was inherited from her mother. She also inherited from her mother some orchids that have been with her for 40 years. She has always lived in Baruta and knows many people from La Palomera. One of her old friends is William Díaz, who always comes down to help her transplant and weed the plants.
