Really nice gardens on the outskirts of malaga city(€10 in a taxi or i think some buses go out there). You could easily loose yourself for a few hours out there, a lot of work has been put into maintaining the grounds. The view from the mirador is only ok, but still worth heading up there to check out the... More

We were really looking forward to visiting the Botanical Gardens, it was one of the key places we wanted to visit on our holiday. However it turned out to be disappointing and I don't think it was because our expectations were too high. One reviewer said that the gardens are well maintained; I would partially agree in that some of... More

Worth taking a guide to really understand the history and botanical features of La Concepcion. A fine world-wide collection of unusual trees and shrubs are kept in well cared for natural surroundings.

We went to this botanical garden as part of a sight-seeing tour from the city centre, which could be booked near the main station in Malaga! We had time to have refreshments, and also explore all the main areas of interest, taking the occasional photograph as we strolled. A fine relaxing way to spend a few hours on a warm... More

Many have commented on the quality of this garden. Only to add, even if you do not love garden's the cafe is a very special treat for lunch - unbelievable good food. Also you can use the green line on the Hop On Hop Off bus (1,30 euro each way if you do not have a day pass) and it... More

Hard to find, there was a bus in city centre that takes you right there but we couldn't find it. When we finally got there, we took a guide tour, but really hard to understand the guide's English. If you're not really into plants, don't bother

It does take a bit of effort to get here. We took the no. 2 bus from the Alameda Principal in the city centre to the final stop on the bus route. We then followed signs to the garden which took us uphill and alongside the motorway (which wasn't all that pleasant). But at least it was only about 15... More
