Jardí­n Botánico de la Concepcion


Parks and Gardens Outdoor Activities
The Botanic Gardens of the Finca de la Concepción are located just at the city's northern edge and offer a remarkable environment rich in history and ecological diversity. It is a sumptuous park filled with dense sub-tropical vegetation, with over fifty thousand plants from nearly three thousand different species. It is one of the most comprehensive and varied botanic gardens of sub-tropical species in Europe, and its all in the open air. A visit to La Concepción is to slip into a parallel reality, a verdant time warp. The parks were laid out over 150 years ago in the grand style of the Enlightenment, taking inspiration from the great English landscape artists with strong neo-classical nods. Its early fame was less to do with its beauty, and more to do with its collection of archaeological remains, including Roman mosaics and relics recovered from Roman villas and sites discovered in the region. Today the gardens offer a magical experience. With its dense mature foliage, the air is moist and fragrant, cooled by the deep shade and numerous fountains. Architectural features include the famous Doric temple, the Palladian mansion, and various arbors, terraces and walkways. Most major cities have 'green lungs' at their heart, Malaga's Jardí­n Botánico offers a small paradise, at once romantic, exotic, historical and contemporary.

In July and August it plays host to a guided theatrical animation in the gardens with actors and musicians. Its theme is based on some of the historical figures responsible for the gardens, and the tour allows you a special view of the newly installed nocturnal lighting features and visits to the old palace interiors. La Concepción truly is a botanical marvel and an unforgettable experience, not to mention a sometimes welcome change from the hubbub of Málaga centre.
