Honestly, this is the most exciting thing that has happened this year so far!
I’ve seen a few pictures from the Botanical Gardens in Malaga but never fully acknowledged the true beauty of the place until I went there myself a few weeks ago.
The gardens caught my attention when I saw a few pictures on Instagram, but it’s much more than just a few algorithm pleasing images. It’s a true historic jungle just outside of the city, where you are so immersed with the nature that you loose a sense of where you are and how long you’ve been there.
The Jardin Botanico Historico La Conception has a fascinating history and no matter which route you decide to walk, you’re in for a real treat.
It may be my biased opinion from living in Cyprus for 6 years without much access to such lush surroundings, but this places is guaranteed to melt your stress away and make you feel like you just went for an extended holiday somewhere in Madagaskar.
The variety of plants, trees and exotic species is breath-taking and if that’s not enough – keep in mind that you can bring your own picnic food and enjoy it in some pretty spectacular surroundings.
Just like we did, under the blooming wisteria, while listening to the buzz of bees feeding on the pollen and birds rushing through the sky. Our friends showed us the most spectacular picnic spot, by a little pond, under the shade of wisteria trees, where we ended up eating out way through a spread of bread & nibbles, sipping wine and toasting to good times.
If you ever visit Malaga, this place should be on top of your list, because this is the true beauty of any country – the nature, as fleeting as it may be.
