In Greek mythology, the Hesperides were Nymphs of the Sunset. They were said to be daughters of Atlas and Hesperis or Nyx, or of Phorcys and Ceto. They tended a blissful garden in a far western corner of the world, located near the Atlas mountains in North Africa at the edge of the encircling Oceanus, the world-ocean. The Hesperides were guardians of the tree that produced golden apples, a gift to Earth from Hera.
