Fantastic little find. Beautiful Gardens and a wealth of historic culture. Only 6 euro to go in and well worth it.

These gardens are just next to the tunnel through the mountains to Soller. There is plenty of car parking and admission to the gardens is €5.50. The route through the gardens is well marked and there is plenty to see although the main pool could do with some water cleaning! There is a small cafe on site and a restaurant... More

Historic house and gardens featuring moorish gate house with "artesano" cieling. Fresh orange juice and lots of palm trees, let's hope the " palm buck-beatle" recently introduced to the Med from Asia doesn,t harm them like in other spots in Mallorca The driver of the public transport bus doesn,t allow exit or entrance in front of the gardens near Soller...

Car park on left near restaurant or if not busy proceed through gates and park on road leading to entrance lined by plane trees. The gardens are superb with a large limpid lake at the... More

This was a pleasant walk from the centre. Being a botanic garden, the displays are designed for teaching as well as beauty but we enjoyed the two hours or so we spent here. The layout of the different areas was attractive and we liked the sculptures.

We visited mid-September - there was some work going on so a fair part of the garden was awaiting restocking. The rest was beautiful, tranquil and serene. There was a water feature alley that was great fun and you're pretty much guaranteed to get wet if you linger there too long.

Visited Jardis de Alfabia in September 2013. Really taken with this place, not very big but peaceful and well laid out. The gardens themselves, with the water flowing from ponds and irrigation channels were inviting and nicely planted. There were some open spaces which could have been put to better use, but there were people working around these spaces, hopefully... More

Really nice, but not a great deal to see. However, it is a lovely oasis of peace if there aren't many visitors. It is very easy to find being at the Palma end of the road tunnel to Soller.

What a surprise this was - the gardens were a fascinating insight into tree and fern species planted into a formal style.The house was interesting and contained many original old documents plus a beautifully carved chair.However most interesting for me was the intact olive press with a good description of the process in English ( and several other languages) ,...
