The senses: gardens and landscapes

The senses allow the living being the capacity of perception, especially environmental characteristics, through senses of internal or external origins. Until recently gardens and landscapes were only related to the five basic senses: vision, hearing, smell, touch, and taste. However, with the evolution of the landscape concept, the range of the senses was increased beyond the set of these human sensations, including also social, cultural and economic relations. Gardens and landscapes turn into a group of structured representations characterized by a strong emotional and cultural impregnation, unchaining in humans sensations originated from the relation between their historical and cultural path.
