Truly excellent and worth an hour or so to wander round, this garden is unconventional of any other botanical garden that I can recall as it is built in the grounds of an old quarry so it is vast once inside. No glass anywhere !...More

We really enjoyed Estufa Fria. There are a series of large green houses (with 'open' roof, it will make sense when you visit and you see it!) that are extremely well kept. There are a large variety of trees and plants in the different climate...More

It's a lovely place not far from the city centre. Tickets are inexpensive (€3.10 for a regular) so it's definitely worth a visit. There is a lot of lovely plants in the greenhouses. It's a delightful place to walk around as there are so many...More

We've been to the adjacent park a number of times and were stunned by the size of this place, which we had never seen. Packed full of plants and beautifully maintained- the people in the ticket office were friendly and welcoming too. Outside there is...More

This is an absolute gem. Why this isn't promoted more is a real shame - we stumbled across this by chance and absolutely loved it. The good thing for us is that it was almost deserted the time we were in there A large botanical...More
