Four kilometres north of the city centre is this large botanical garden. Dating from the mid-19th century, it is the brainchild of a local aristocratic couple, British-born Amalia Heredia Livermore and her Spanish husband, Jorge Loring Oyarzabal. They decided to recreate a tropical forest near the shores of the Mediterranean. It is famous for its purple wisteria blooms in spring.

By car, take the A45 Antequera road north from the Málaga ring road (A7) to Km166 and follow the signs for the ‘Jardín Botánico’.
