This week we went to the botanical gardens, which is a garden in the north of Malaga.
In this garden you will find a lot of tropical plants and trees. It is very easy to reach by E-bike, from the E-bike Malaga shop just straight ahead in a northerly direction. We cycled with two Viena tracking e-bikes (this is a hybrid between a city bike and a mountain bike).
You can visit the 250,000 square meter garden for a small fee. There are a number of places to eat and drink, but you can also bring your own food and eat it somewhere in the park. There are more than 2000 different species of plants and trees from 5 continents.
The garden was designed in 1855 for royal families and bought by the municipality of Malaga in 1990 for 600 million pesetas (€3,606,073). The garden was opened to the public in 1994 and has 130,000 visitors per year.
We arrived at the garden after an easy twenty minute drive. After the entrance we turn right and pass various highlights in the park. We walk towards the biggest highlight of the garden, Casa-Palacio. Casa-Palacio was the home of the first royal family to live in the park. After Casa-Palacio we continue our way towards Mirador historico, this is a small chapel where you have a view over part of the park. Finally (and for us the most beautiful) we walked past the Loringiano y Exadra Museum, which used to be a museum for all the archaeological finds found during the construction of the park.
If you are in Malaga, I definitely recommend visiting this beautiful garden. This can be done very easily with an electric bicycle. If you would like to rent an electric bicycle, be sure to visit the store.
