Hanging Garden

A 2011 Record Guiness to the biggest hanging garden. A sustainable project that it favours biodiversity, it reduces the levels of pollution and it provides thermo-acoustic insulation

A living and constantly changing project that takes great care of the landscape technician Manuel Pasquín. It is so impressive that the TV channel Antena 3 was here to make a report, Do you come to see it?

The Hotel Santo Domingo has a Hanging Garden of 1,000 m². A small/large ecosystem, Guinness Record for the largest in the world in 2011. It is a green lung, inside the hotel, composed of more than 2,500 plants. A work of art whose support and constructive design was solved by the architect Felix Gonzalez Vela, with a simple and practical solution.

If the romantic legends are true, it would be the closest thing that exists today to the famous Hanging Gardens of Babylon.

Do you know how the Hanging Garden is supported and cared for? It is held up by 300 linear meters of scaffolding. Impressive, isn't it?

Due to its dimensions, irrigation is done through drip irrigation in phases, depending on the location of the plants. Being such a large area, the hotel, in its fight for sustainability, has installed a system that reuses water from some sinks and showers, purifying and filtering it to irrigate the garden and create an artificial waterfall 20 meters high that descends from the top.

A fact that will surely catch your attention is that the garden has never been fumigated: instead of insecticides and fungicides, the garden has been treated with "integrated pest control" (which means that predatory insects are released).

What does this green lung bring to the heart of the city?

  • It promotes biodiversity. Some birds have also found a home in this ecosystem.
  • It reduces pollution by absorbing 25,000 kg of CO2 per year.
  • It provides thermal and acoustic insulation.
  • Reduces the temperature between 6 and 8 degrees (effect of 50 air conditioners).
  • Produces an amount of oxygen equal to that consumed by 200 people a day.
