As a teenager, Anne Elise Urrutia ventured into Miraflores, the disappearing family garden of her great-grandfather, Aureliano Urrutia, in San Antonio, Texas. Over the years she has continued to explore the garden and its history. Her research on Miraflores has allowed her to rebuild, through words and pictures, the doctor’s lost landscape and receive his message of cultural heritage communicated through this once beautiful and expressive place. She received her English degree from Colorado College and blogs at quintaurrutia.com. She lives in San Antonio.
Aureliano Urrutia, a prominent physician in Mexico City, built Miraflores garden after immigrating to Texas during the Mexican Revolution. A man of science, he valued nature, art, literature, history, and community. The garden, whose name roughly translates to “behold the flowers,” was built primarily from 1921 to 1945. Its plants, architecture, sculpture, and artisanship formed a cultural landscape reflecting Urrutia’s love for and memory of his homeland. Though recent decades have rendered much of the garden decayed and barely recognizable, it is now part of San Antonio’s historic Brackenridge Park. Miraflores: San Antonio’s Mexican Garden of Memory recounts the garden’s history and celebrates the importance of the cultural, historical, and artistic meaning of a place.
Aureliano Urrutia, a prominent physician and public servant in Mexico City, built Miraflores garden after he immigrated to San Antonio, Texas, from Mexico in 1914 during the Mexican Revolution.
