Notes NOTES: The Jardin de las Damas was already in existence in the 16th century, albeit on a smaller scale. In the early 17th century Vermondo Resta extended and redesigned it, laying out the garden as a large rectangle with eight compartments along a central axis, as seen here with fountains at the intersections of the paths.
