Located opposite the gate of Malaventura, which gave access to the Jewish quarter centuries ago, the garden pays tribute to rabbi Moshe de Leon, who lived in Avila (XIII century) and wrote one of the great mystical books of humanity: the Zohar, or Book of Splendor. Trying to evoke the spirituality of the Hebrew sage, the garden presents an architecture that reflects the structure of a mystical garden.
