LA CONCEPCION BOTANICAL GARDENS, MALAGA

botanicalmalaga.jpg

One of the most beautiful and important tropical gardens in Spain and one of the best in Europe. The immense araucarias, palms, cycads, bamboos and vast range of flowers, give the garden a luxurious tropical feel about it. One of the highlights in spring is the flowering of the huge wisteria which clambers over the ironwork of an arbour next to the mansion. In summer, the shady walks with their pools, populated by water lilies, turtles and frogs, are a welcome break from the heat. Open from 9.30am – 8.30pm (5.30pm October to March), closed Mondays. Children €3.10 and adults €5.20. Guided tours for an extra €3 after 12pm.
