Well, it's not Kew but it's a pleasant enough place to spend a couple of hours ambling about in. Not too much to see in autumn, but it might be prettier in springtime.

The garden is of obvious importance, but not in any way spectacular. Really nice to wander around for couple of quiet hours, The real star is the Mirador at the top of the garden, a moorish dome with a beautiful reflecting pool, including terrapin, with a view across Malaga that is unrivalled

Don't miss out on visiting these gardens. It's about 8 euros in a taxi to get there from central Malaga. You can easily spend two or three hours there. It's cheap entry too - about 5 euros per adult. I loved it. Very scenic and serene. It's just lovely to wonder about aimlessly. There's a cafe bar there too which... More

After reading so much about this "botanical wonder" we decided to give it a go. It's been a hot last couple of weeks here in Malaga for the end of October so we packed a light lunch and a few drinks and headed for some "sophisticated arboreal delights " which according to my old friend Mr. Satnav should be a...

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
