Botanical garden El Retiro

Ideal for nature lovers, the Retiro Jardín Botánico is a very relaxing and tranquil option on your travel itinerary. These exquisite subtropical gardens were founded by a bishop of Malaga in the 17th Century. The gardens are strewn with lakes, streams, waterfalls, stone fountains and other interesting sculptures and have over 800 species of plants and trees.

One of the gardens highlights is definitely the aviary which is home to more than 1000 exotic bird species that have been brought from all over the world.

Take some time out while on your Spanish Language Course in Malaga and relax by a stone fountain or a trickling stream to the sound of birds.
