The Jardín Botanico La Concepción is located on a hillside on the outskirts of Málaga and is a mixture of paved routes and hillside and forest tracks, with some of the areas quite wild.
Created in 1855, the gardens contain over 50,000 plants.
From Alameda, in the centre of Málaga, take the EMT bus number 2 right to its end stop. It is then about a ten minute walk to the gardens.
The gardens are divided into several areas and there are walking routes – with picnic/rest areas along the way – of varying lengths and degrees of difficulty.
There is a Forest Route, Historical Garden Route, Mirador (viewpoint) Route, Cactus garden and many more to keep you occupied. There is a nice little cafe by the entrance.
