A landscaped garden that's been cultivated since the 19th century, Jardín Huerto del Cura is ribboned with stone walkways lined with plants. The gardens are dense, with species of fauna that run the gamut from lush trees and palms to stout, spiky cactus. In the center, at the edge of manmade duck pond, is a gazebo with cushioned lounge chairs. Make the most of the small entry fee by bringing a snack to enjoy in the gazebo.

  • Beautiful garden. Lot of different kind of palm trees and also many cactus plants. Entrance 5,50€. Worth of the money if you do like places like this.
  • This is a lovely garden which i think cost 3 euros admission. It's very well layed out with easy to follow signs, all numbered so you don't miss anything. The trees and plants are very impressive and we saw mandarin ducks, turtles and white peacocks. A lovely place to take children for a couple of hours. There is a gift shop which sells snacks and drinks but no cafe. Toilet facilities within the garden which are very clean. Parking is not easy or very close but we parked just up the road outside the police station in a nice car park. Only a short walk.
