La Seda Garden

Spanish name: Jardín de la Seda

La Seda Garden The history of this iconic garden dates back to the end of the Middle-Ages and the Spanish Golden Age, when the hermitage of San Lázaro and the hospital, built in the vicinity, were under the care of the San Antón's Brotherhood, which gave place after name the famous shrine.
Subsequently, the Franciscans of San Diego -populary known as the "Diegos"-  settled faceing the church of San Antón and founded a convent, which was left to the community until the 19th century, when a silk factory was built on the site that gives it's name to the district.

The silk factory remained in production until the mid 20th century, when it was demolished, transforming the site in a public garden, which preserves the chimney as a vestige of that flourishing industry of past ages.

The garden was built in 1990, and in 1999 suffered a remodel, especially concerning to its vegetation and the distribution of spaces and roads. A small stream runs through it dorsally, communicating two small lakes.
