A neatly organised garden featuring a range of habitats. The entrance is from the main road although the garden has a wide , inviting perimeter. The museum is worthy with a few surprising tweaks.

This garden is a short stroll out of Soller. It's quiet place to spend time and enjoy the Mediterranean trees and plants. The ticket cost €8 which included entry to the natural history museum. We particularly enjoyed the collection of local shells. There are also interesting fossils.

Really enjoyed our trip here. It's a little overgrown, but the different gardens are very interesting. Lovely plants and trees which are presented in different settings. A welcome retreat from the hustle and bustle of the town.

We enjoyed our visit to these gardens. We would have liked more information in English. There are bare bits which might disappoint some visitors but we accepted that gardens are seasonal and it's only April.

I especially liked how it's arranged with different parts of the garden representing different Mediterranean islands. It's not very big, so you can browse through all parts without getting exhausted.

I did visit this garden on the 31st of January. It is not a high season. The garden museum and a shop are closed in winter. There is a toilet available and you can buy a hot drinks from a dispenser machine. It is a small garden. It is a bit noisy there because of a busy road nearby. If... More

We have been going past this place now for many years and this year on a very hot afternoon we thought we must go in there. What a delight a lovely cool tranquil place to visit. These gardens are located just outside the tunnel entrance.

The gardens need a bit of care and attention. Admittedly it was not the time of year to visit as most plants had gone over and there was not a lot to see. I'm sure if I visited at another time my opinion would be different. The natural history section was brilliant though, very informative and interesting.

Dear Liz H, first of all, many thanks for visit us. Your fee contributes to the conservation of the endangered species of our living plant collection and seed bank. I'm not so glad to recognise that the garden is not now in the best moment, but this is not because of the autumn time, it is because of our poor... More

I've visited the botanical gardens in Madeira, Capetown, Kew and Sheffield. I didn't expect these to compare, but to frank - I've seen less weeds on a council roundabout. Guess these are suffering from lack of State funding and relying on volunteers to put he time and effort in. The cactus area is probably the best, the rest are a... More

Dear visitor, Many thanks for visit us. We know the gardens you say. We work close together with Kew in seeds conservation and we know very well this wonderful garden. You are right that we can't compare both... You are so right that our problem for the last year has been the lack of funding. We have had 5 gardeners... More

we enjoyed walking around the gardens. well set out. there are lots of benches dotted around the garden where you can sit and relax. In the cactus garden is a nice seating area, with a small building that has a coffee vending machine inside. We also visited the Natural Science Museum which is housed within the gardens which has some... More
