We came on our last day, and were pleased we did. A lovely tranquil gardens in contrast to the more commercial Alcazar. Great value and well worth the visit

this seems a perfect setup for families with young children. it was easy to get to, at the mouth of the first bridge south of the Roman bridge. it's also right across the street from the zoo, which was only 4.50 euros and seemed well organized by continent with elephants, wolves and bears, etc.

the gardens were only 1 Euro when we went there on Sunday and well worth it. shaded pathways, several two level fountains, several greenhouses, etc. we certainly had the feeling the botanical gardens were really for people with a specialized interest in varieties of plants because they had a variety of ground covers, grasses, ivy, etc. but not a big emphasis on flowers. also, they had different sections (about 12 sections) laid out by region and time period. so, for instance, there was a section for plants that were common in medieval times but endangered now . there was a section about how people interacted with natural landscapes in the Americas. there was a section for the oldest seed borne plans in the world.

aside from plants, there were many tables and chairs set up outside at the cafeteria, which had low prices(1.20 euros for a beer, 2 euro for a lemon granizado ( like a slushee)). There were also art vendors at the entrance selling nice pieces at reasonable prices (25 euros for a multicolor abstract that resembled a miro). when we got there, we first came into a garden sale where it seemed different groups of buyers were engaged in longer discussions about a variety of plants and bushes, which were also being sold at a reasonable price. when we left, we noticed a pond with koi near the ticket box. we were also approached by a middle aged woman with a petition to restore the gardens at the train station.

all in all, it was a very relaxing Sunday afternoon with friendly locals who appreciate green spaces... lovely.

Early season, so many of the on site facilities closed. The hot houses have an aire of neglect about them and there is a sparse permanent collection of plants. The gardens at the Alcazar are much better
