I visited the gardens in 1996 -ok its a while ago. It was January and they were pruning the Wisteria, but the trees and ferns were still worth seeing -a couple of Roman items are in the gardens too. I spent about 2 hours walking around. i then went to the Alhambra at Granada.

Catch the little red bus outside the Maria Zambrano train station (head towards Southeast direction) the bus stops on the Calle Explanada de la Estacion about every 1.5 hours. (NOTE: It does not stop any longer at the bus station) .The bus was also headed to the auto musuem, we did not get off, just stay on and it loops... More

We hopped on a bus and then had to walk a bit but was worth the walk there is another bus (red bus)which stops right in front but the times did not work out for us. The place is a wonderful place to spend a day and anyone who enjoys gardens and plants would enjoy the visit. The paths were... More

Great variety of plants and well-labelled. Fabulous views of the city and sea. Lots to look at even in the winter. Nice little cafe serving salads, quiche and sandwiches.

This attraction is at its best in the Summer months when all the plants trees and shrubs are looking their loveliest It is hard to imagine that this wonderful area lies so close to the busy motorway. Once inside the Gardens you are in another world. This was once a private house where the owners travelled the world indulging their... More

We went in December and too little was in bloom to enjoy. I can imagine it could be wonderful. A couple of bits of advice the number 2 bus gets you close but you are left with a 20 minute walk which is not pretty perhaps in the summer they a have another bus. Secondly the food in the little...

Yes, there were some flowering shrubs but otherwise trees, many labelled and some obviously old. Plenty of walkways to the different areas and places to sit and rest. Some orchids were supposedly contained in a small greenhouse which could not be entered, and it was not the flowering season . We also enjoyed seeing the cactus and succulents section. The... More

Importantly, you must be ready with bus timetable beforehand so when you need to leave this place, you do not need to wait for so long as I did. There was special bus to get there but I failed to locate it, so I took public bus which stopped far away from this Jardin. I had to walk back to... More

As long as you aren't expecting a riot of colour you'll enjoy these woodlands; they are not really gardens. We particularly liked the cactii section, the lake, Casa Palacio, Mirador Historico, The Forest Route and Palm Avenue. Entrance is 5 Euros 20 which is probably fair; NB closed Mondays. We used the Green Line RED bus to get there. It... More
