San Antonio's Secret Garden
Last Updated by
Originally San Antonio’s "secret garden," Miraflores is a piece of history that is a snapshot in time of a private estate garden.
The 4.5 acre garden along the San Antonio River contains a number of significant concrete art objects, reflecting important aspects of Mexican history, art, and culture. Some are on the Smithsonian American Art Museum's Inventory of American Sculpture.
The garden includes statuary, pedestals, urns, talavera tile benches and faux bois works of Dionicio Rodríguez, an artist from Mexico noted for his faux bois pieces in San Antonio and other states.
