If you like bonsai this isthe place, lots of amazing bonsai set in a small museum. Water feature in the centre of the main room with bonsai growing on the rocks gives the place a peaceful quality in keeping with Japanese tradition . Bonsai from 40 years to 500 years old.

I can't describe with only words such a beautiful collection. I have been a bonsai lover for a few years and have attended bonsai shows in different places, but none as good as this small and cosy place. More than 250 trees from different species showing good examples of classical and modern styles accompanied as well by local Mediterranean species.... More

Obviously you have to have some interest in Bonsai trees to go. They intrigue me so we took a visit there. A lovely collection of Bonsai's that are set in a nice walk through. Enjoyable and would go again. Staff were very helpful too in our somewhat broken English/Spanish conversation kind of handwaving mime thing we had going on;)

Stumbled on this Bonsai museum/attraction by chance in a quiet park near the Old Town. Worth a visit to see quite a large collection of bonsai trees - some are hundreds of years old. Plus a pond with lots of terrapins

If you are intersested in Bonsai trees this is a great place to go. However, if you prefer natural history or local culture or some of the local social history that southern Spain is world-renowed for you could try, er, um, or, or else ..........!!!!! ZZZzzzz

This is a beautiful place to visit. Full of species (even a 400 y/o japanese tree) The content is great but I think they have a very poor presentation. There is no pictures or descriptions of what you are seeing. No technical explanation either of how they create a bonsai or how they keep them for so long. The good... More

I have visited it several times and plan to visit it again shortly with a friend who has never been there The Location is near the Blue Bridge in the "Old Town" and it is a "destination" place of interest as it is not widely publicised There are probably more than 100 specimens - all very well cared for- the...

Nicely located and for plant lovers, it's probably wonderful. To me, it was good to stand long enough in place to hear the Bonsai grow!
