The Jardín Botanico La Concepción is located on a hillside on the outskirts of Málaga and is a mixture of paved routes and hillside and forest tracks, with some of the areas quite wild. From Alameda, in the centre of Málaga, take the EMT bus number 2 right to its end stop. It is then about a ten minute walk to the gardens.
The gardens are divided into several areas and there are walking routes – with picnic/rest areas along the way – of varying lengths and degrees of difficulty. There is a Forest Route, Historical Garden Route, Mirador (viewpoint) Route, Cactus garden and many more to keep you occupied. There is a nice little cafe by the entrance.
