Great place to visit for a couple of hours!

The botanical gardens are a fantastic attraction only about 10 minutes by car from the city centre with lots to see and right next to the Laboral Ciudad de la Culture.

Tripadvisor's guide instructed that it was only 0,9 km from our hotel. However, it was about 2-2,5 km. This was OK to walk but instructions are wrong. In Tripadvisor's Timeline adress is right. Nice and relaxing garden with not tol many visitors.

This informative and well laid out garden is a super place to spend a morning in Gijon. There is parking on site but it is also well served by local buses.

I went for a concert, they have life music often. Gorgeous gardens, with water features, very calm and relaxing experience. Great samples of Asturias flora.

A nice open space in the surroundings of Gijón and a decent presentation with a good scientific background. This Botanical Garden started as a local must a few years ago. But R&D has not improved much since then and the actual management is more tempted by entertainment programs than by developing a brand for aficionados to European gardens. It is... More

Gijon’s Atlantic Botanic Gardens is located near the university, just a short walk away from the city center. Free parking close to the entrance. Beautifully presented and worth a visit.

This is a beautiful place to go and explore. You will learn a lot about the native plants and they also have fruit trees and veggie gardens, which are nice to see as well.

Jardin de las Islas is our favorite. July & August definitely good times to visit. Enough parking, nice cafe; we highly recommend, even on a not so nice day.
