Perhaps if I had come to visit this garden in April/May, more of the plants would have been blooming. As it was, there were a few plants with flowers and some trees with oranges and lemons but much of the garden looked as though it was being prepared for the winter season (this was late Sept).

The Botanical gardens is right near the entrance to the new tunnel that takes you on to Palma. Parking spaces, so a nice visit for 1-2 hrs.some wonderful cacti and everything is divided into little garden areas. Plenty of seats where you can stop and relax. there is a natural history museum on site. Very interesting

I will echo what the previous reviewer said in that some of the plants have gone over now and there is obviously too much work for the reduced number of gardeners down to funding cuts. But it was a nice break from the eating and drinking for an hour with some pretty plants to look at. I hope my review... More

This is a delightful garden. It has a Mediterranean theme and although we probably didn't see it at its best in September it was still well worth a visit. It probably is an attraction for garden/nature lovers who would best appreciate the interesting flowers and fruits. Easy to find with parking outside adjacent to the main road. Normally there is...

We visited in September after a very dry summer, but there were still a lot of plants to see, some beautiful ponds with lilies, a thoughtful piece tribute and some ideas to take home. The museum is housed in an interesting building and if you like natural life it will be of interest. We spent two hours there, and it... More

It is a nice place to spend an hour or two including the museum visit. There aren't so many plants but the view of the mountains that surround the area is beautiful. We paid aroun 10 euro/person...not so expensive but we went at noon and we walked in the hot sun...

This is about conservation rather than beauty..... I wouldn't go back a second time and we did well to make it last forty minutes.

Even for non garden visitors it is definitely worth some time, but a few hours is really it. Close to Soller centre
