Jardín Botánico La Concepción Málaga

Start Point:
Google "Jardin Botanico Malaga" and select the "Maps" tab. Follow the A7 towards and around Málaga and exit at 241 which takes you onto the Northbound A45. After a couple of minutes exit at 140. From there just follow signs for EL BOTANICO or JARDIN HISTORICO LA CONCEPCION. It will take you over to the other side of the road and from here you continue on a slip road running parallel with the A45. You will pass 2 entrances to the gardens, but you have to continue down to the 3rd entrance which is the one for the visitors. It´s next to a big parking lot. Driving time from Fuengirola is about 40 minutes. The gardens are situated just north of Málaga.

We meet at 10.30 by the ticket office, next to the entrance. The ticket is 7.50 euros including entrance fee and a guided tour and if possible please bring the exact money!! There is no discount for pensioners. After getting our tickets we have time for a coffee at the pleasant little café/restaurant next to the ticket office. Before the guided tour, we have about an hour to do a walk of the other areas not included in the tour. There is a beautiful RUTA FORESTAL (forest trail) with views of the gardens and of Málaga, which we will do. The Jardín Botánico dates from 1855 and has over 50.000 trees. It also holds a lot of interesting history. At noon we start a 1,5 hour walking tour with an English speaking guide just to get the amazing history of these gardens. Tour finishes at 1.30. At that time we have 2 options: for those bringing their own lunch, there are several picnic areas in the garden and for those who prefer so, the café has nice lunch offers at very reasonable prices. The guide is already booked but I need to let them know the number of visitors and therefore I need to know who is going by April 20. An email will be sent out to remind you. If you have any questions, please call or email me. Charlotte 639 07 00 43/chsokjer@hotmail.com
