We phoned ahead to check the garden would be open on Wednesday morning at 11am.
Yes it would be open .
We arrived at 11 and the door was just being opened .
3 euros each . (There are discounts for seniors)
This was a visit to a garden we have came to on every visit to this area and we were looking forward to our visit .
The receptionist was so warm and friendly and welcomed us and explained about the garden .
We were told to close our eyes as we entered through into the garden.
The Jasmine perfume was rich and intense and we knew we were going to enjoy our visit .
After almost 3 hours of strolling ,taking photographs and relaxing .
The many water features were beautiful and the cascade on the hill with the delicate ferns was stunning .
A lot of hard work goes into keeping this historic garden mainly by volunteers with a pride .
We didn’t miss a bit of the garden and would recommend a visit .
On our way out we were met by the lovely lady who issued our tickets and she presented each of us with a bunch of grapes freshly cut from the garden.
We asked about the source of the water ( El Naciemto )for the garden and we were told the source was just above the village and we could walk there very easily.

I’m glad we did !

The gardens are such a hidden gem. They are very quiet and peaceful. Beautiful cypress trees, waterfall and caves. I’m sure in summer the gardens are full
of colour and more stunning. The gardens are small but well worth the €3 entrance fee. Lovely to sit on the sun and enjoy some head space! Turn off you phone and really enjoy nature.

Once the entrance is found in the little lanes of the town a delightful garden is presented. Very much welcomed by the receptionist, we ambled around the garden following the excellent map. A surprise were the caves underneath, well worth the steps down and up. Certainly worth a detour off the motorway.

Though it's not an easy place to find this is a great little garden and cave system that exist thanks to 'El Nacimiento' - a spring source located higher up in the village. We have been here to visit just the garden as well as various art showings and it's always been a pleasure to walk around the grounds. When it's very hot outside it's even nicer to visit the damp caves that have been carved out of the cliff rocks by a constant erosion of water. You can imagine going back in time and discovering this place like a hidden paradise. If you've never been to the Alhambra then I would recommend visiting the Jardin Nazari first - you won't be disappointed!

Don't expect there to rival the Alhambra but combined with a visit to the town you get chance to experience the real Spain ( yuk!). It's quite low key with limited opening times but you are likely to be greeted by friendly young ladies on the desk who anxious to enjoy your visit and tell you about their stays in England. It's a bit hit and miss what you will see but Springs generally good for blossom and Autumn for fruit. There is usually water running through but last time we went bit was dry probably due to the dry winter. You get a map so you can find interesting plants, and it's possible to visit caves which are illuminated in the cliff face, but take care as some bits are slippery and we once witnessed a very nasty fall. There is no Cafe but there is also an exhibition hall which sometimes features local artists. There is much parking near by but we usually park on the exit road towards Granada which has good views of Serria Nevada in the background. From here is possible to walk to the source of the garden's water, which has a good restaurant. There is also an easy walk, and hard walk shown on notice boards near the way to the Naciamentos and in January/ February you should be rewarded with displays of almond blossom.

The siesta is usually the reason that we couldn't visit a place that we wanted to visit, for example this garden. When we're arrived at this place, it's just about to close so we couldn't go inside. Well, we we took a little walk in the village. There is a nice plaza in front of the Jardin Nazari and we got a quick look of the garden from the side door of the garden.

Gardens. Not particularly large or unusual, but the caves provide an interesting distraction. Very good value.
