The Palace and Gardens of Peñacerrada are located in the Plaza del Poble Nou.

The English garden, romantic style, is composed of a pine grove, two artificial mountains connected by a bridge and covered by opuntias (drainers), a turret, a grotto and the Casa de la Vieja.

A fourth style is dominant throughout the garden.

This pool, surrounded by cypress trees and benches, had three functions: water, supply the palace and as a recreational area.
