Real Jardin Botanico reviews
The experience did not start well as the woman at the entrance was extremely rude to us for no reason and did not let me and my friend pay separately for some unknown reason to us. La experiencia... more »
Not looked after at all. Some parts of the garden were just bare beds with weeds. Very disappointing. Giving it two stars as the bonsais were good and the bromeliad greenhouse too. more »
This place gets 5 stars, solely for its amazing Bonsai tree collection. The best collection I've ever seen, with a wide variety of trees. Went in September and saw a few trees that had fully sized fruit on, I think it was pomegranate and maybe a pear? Really well designed section of the garden - it's right at the top so make sure to go. The rest of the park is good maybe 4/5 stars.
Loved it! Well I love botanical gardens in general but it's a very pleasant, chill way to see the flora and fauna, it does cost to get in but I think it was like 4€ and if you're a student with ID you can get a discount. Nice little break from a little tourist jaunt.
