Granada – Enjoy Concepción Botanical Garden and a Tapas Tour of Granada
The provincial capital of Malaga is rich in history and culture but often fades behind the gilded imagery of Granada and its jewel, the Alhambra Palace. However, Malaga is a destination of its own with a dynamic culture emphasized by the “Mile of Art,” a collection of galleries that includes the Picasso Museum, the Center for Contemporary Art, the Pompidou, and the Carmen Thyssen Museum. Your private transfer greets you at Malaga-Costa del Sol Airport upon your arrival and escorts you through the city to your hotel. Once you have had some time to refresh, your private transfer will bring you to the Concepción Botanical Garden. The tropical paradise consists of over 800 species of plants and flowers in an English landscape that has decorated the northern entrance to the city for more than 150 years.
The gardens opened to the public in the mid-1990s after the Malaga city council took control of the property. The subtropical climate provides perfect temperatures for bamboo, citrus fruits, and palms, as well as the famous manicured hedges. The scent of wisteria emanates from the arbor with clusters of lilacs adding an extra layer of sweetness to the air. A statue of a forest nymph decorates the pond. A woman sits with a jug, serving as a fountain. You continue to the city of Granada to explore Albaicín Quarter, where the aroma of Spanish tortillas and cured hams drift out of the local tapas bars.
