Cuban gardens.

For Europeans, "the history of Cuba began with the arrival of Christopher Columbus in 1492 and the subsequent invasion of the island by the Spaniards.  Aboriginal groups—the Guanahatabey, Ciboney, and Taíno - were soon eliminated or died as a result of diseases or the shock of conquest."  - nationsonline.orgGardens in Cuba reflect layers of history.  Styles range from European formal to gardenesque to modernist landscapes and reflect Spanish, French, US, and Latin American influences.
