beautiful place, don't miss it! The garden itself is lovely, plus there's a friendly little grey parrot-like bird who will fly on your shoulder and let you take some extra special pics too! Oh, and we had the best home made coconut-baileys cake there! Seriously guys, go and visit it if you can, it's wonderful!!!

The gardens were created in the 19th century and they cover a vast area of land. I thoroughly enjoyed wandering but with no real interest in gardens I did just that and wandered. However, it was a very pleasant few hours but, with a real interest in botanical specimens, I imagine that one would need a good half day to... More

I recommend you to visit this place only if you have bought the ticket of the red bus (city tour) or if you have a car. It is about 20-30 minutes far from the city center. In total you may need 1 hour to go there and return and I think 1 hour might be enough to visit the garden... More

I really like botanic gardens. Having said that….others have spoken of lush greens at the Jardin Botanic-Historico de Malaga…..I have no idea what they are talking about. I only saw poorly maintained gardens, dried cacti, leafless bushes, very few flowering plants or trees. The time of year? I don't know. My recommendation would be to skip this garden and stroll...

If you go in the spring like we did, the fragrance from the wisteria blossom covering the wrought iron walkway near the old house is lovely: sweet but spicy at the same time. Walk anti-clockwise to get there via the 'Around the World in Eighty Trees exhibit for the best reveal. We also had both lunch and afternoon tea in... More

Probably the wrong time of the year to visit as there was little in bloom. We could have had any amount of lemons or oranges as there were a lot still hanging on the trees. There were a few water features but not much had been done with them. Compared to the Monte Palace gardens in Madeira this was a... More

We have visited Malaga many times over the years but did not realise this place existed until recently. Located at the north end of the city - just below the motorway - it is quite a hike from the shops and beaches so best to get a bus. The variety of plants and trees here is outstanding and they are... More

We first visited the garden six years ago and were over joyed with it. This time I think the poor weather must have affected it as there were so few flowers and the wisteria walk was only a shadow of its former self. In saying this a visit is still worth while as it is really interesting for a peaceful... More

Plant lovers as well as those who appreciate historical sites should not miss this outstanding garden. It is a combination of a scientific botanical garden combined with the amazing old plantings around the olriginal mansion of what was at one time a private property. Both areas are wonderful with many plants not normally seen in Europe. Palm fanciers will note... More

Went to check out the gardens on a very windy day, got the bus there and found they were closed because of the high winds. Sucked a bit as it wasn't really as windy at the gardens as it was in town. Lesson to learn here don't go if it's blowing a gale !
