  • Shocked at how poor this is. What wasn't dead or dying was on its last legs. This was more of a morgue than a meadow. The designer and Gardeners should all be buried here as a fitting memorial to...  more »
  • A wonderful place to visit after a trip to the Nerja Caves!
  • I’ve been to these gardens three times this year. They are still in their infancy in that the plants and trees are yet to mature, but it’s a wonderful example of local species, all grouped in one place so that you don’t have to climb mountains to find them. The wildlife is impressive too: for a small area it was absolutely crammed with different species, often nectaring on the scrub/undergrowth in between the plants. Yesterday (a sunny day makes a huge difference) I saw 7 species of butterfly including European swallowtail, an eagle, two Hoopoes and lots of birds I have still to identify. There are also various lizards and frogs, plus (impressive for an October day) I counted at least five species of dragonflies. The signs have faded badly in places, but this is a delight and I’ll definitely be going back again.
