Abstract
Th e diff erent combinations between the ?classic? fourfold pattern and water in the garden have produced a high number of varied solutions since the distant past. However, during the Renaissance a new model emerges: a crossaxial garden with four basins arranged symmetrically around its center. Th e composite analysis of the related examples is addressed in this paper, which attempts to fi nd an explanation for the diff erent models as for the appearance of the contrasting solution at the same time in two diff erent locations: the Villa Lante (Bagnaia, Italy) and the Royal Monastery of San Lorenzo in El Escorial (Madrid, Spain).
