A great little garden with fine collections of species native to the island and from further afield. If you want to find out what's special for Mallorca, this is the place to come. Despite its small size the garden provides a fine introduction to Mediterranean plants and there is a nicely presented exhibition of the history of botanical exploration in... More

Great collection of plants, in a lovely setting. Very good collection of plants endemic to the island. Well worth a visit.

A beautiful garden with a great collection of plants in a stunning setting. It has lots of interesting Mediterranean species including many endemic to the Balearics which are great to see and learn about. The staff are lovely and carry out a lot of great conservation work. Definitely worth a visit!

These gardens collect and protect rare plant species from across the Mediterranean. The gardens are laid out by regions - Balearics, Canaries, etc. - with water features including ferns and shady trees. A museum sets out the flora and fauna of the region over three floors. The gardens are within easy walking distance of the centre of Soller and has... More

We went in September. I would have lived to see the garden in June/July when they would be at their most colourful.

A lovely relatively small botanic gardens that could perhaps use a little tlc but is none the less well worth a visit. The cacti and succulents section was in my opinion the best part part with some quite spectacular specimens. The museum was a nice surprise too with some fine skeletons and shells to look at. I very much enjoyed... More

Beautifully kept garden with endemic flora and interesting species from the Mediterranean area. Great if you want to learn more about local species and habitats. Great staff and conservation work. People thinking that the garden looks sad and dry are probably just not familiar with Mediterranean flora. Well worth a visit!!

Soller Botanic gardens is an amazing and important place - charged not only with providing something for visitors to see, but also with researching and safeguarding plants special for the Balearic islands. It does both of these things, on a shoestring budget and with very little personpower. With recent major cuts in many government-funded institutions, support from the public as... More

A bit tired and said, but it still has it charm, in some sad rundown way. Don't expect too much from it!

I normally enjoy botanic gardens, but thus one was terrible. Dull, scurfy, ill cared for, uninformative signage, and pretty small. Also awkward to access on foot, involving a walk along a very busy fast road. A complete waste of time and 6 euros.
