Overview

Walking in the Botanical park & Gardens of Crete offes spiritual tranquility and visual pleasure in addition to knowledge on plants and their material . Nearly 20 hectares of land are waiting to welcome you, full of fruit trees from all over the world, herbs, medicinal and ornamental plants in a park different from others, where the land’s formation and the region’s microclimate make it a paradise for hundreds of plants and animals! In the midst of this colorful and vivid landscape stands a burnt centennial olive tree, a memorial and a reference to the dismal fires of 2003, the park’s history and origin. The newest and one of the most interesting sites of the Prefecture of Chania lies only 18 kilometers outside the city, on the feet of the White Mountains. It is ideal for visitors of all ages, combining enjoyments that only Crete can offer!

This place is an absolute gem!! The gardens and walkways are well kept with plenty of resting places on the way round. In some places it can be steep so not recommended for those with breathing or walking difficulties. For the entrance fee of 6€...More

Absolutely lovely gardens nestled in between mountains not far from Chania at all. We drove from Kissamos and it took around 45 minutes and was an enjoyable drive. The cost for an adult is 6 Euro, including a bottle of water, which is greatly needed...More

Overall it is a beautiful garden and a real find. Something different to do, the ticket price was €6 per adult which included a bottle of water each and a loan (if required) of a walking stick. We visited with our 3 1/2 year old...More

I can really recommend this place. After a walk through the botanical gardens, which are worthwile to see, you can relax at the restaurant. The food is really good and you can also choose somewhat different kind of food than the traditional Cretan kitchen. We...More

It would be best to contact the Botanical Park yourself as I have only visited during the day. Their contact details are Phone 6976860573

It is a distance from Chania to the gardens so a taxi might be expensive. There is a public bus from Chania every day at 9:30. Entrance fee is 6 euros for adults, 4 for children 6-12 and free for children under 6. They have... More
