We took a spontaneous diversion into this cute bonsai garden on our travels through the town! It was lovely to wander around, admiring the work and love that goes into tendering these little plants. We experienced the added element of 2 excited puppies running around and finding fallen avocados amongst the gardens. We loved it!

We rather enjoyed this little place squashed in between the local houses, very unexpected. Some of the specimens were quite old and interesting.

Don't hesitate to visit this little pearl of a conceptual garden:bonsai garden. Here you have the proof, that almost any species of plants can become an nice bonsai by means of love and proper care. Most of the bonsais are nice and refers to one of the basic types of Japanese plant-art. A few are just small trees cut down... More

Won't break the bank at two euros per adult and a pleasant 3/4 hour stroll around. This place was probably awesome a few years ago but I'd suggest the owners visit a real Japanese garden so they can work out how improve their lot. The place is just so untidy, which isn't a Japanese trait at all. There's no fen... More

Make no mistake this is 'just' a garden with bonsais into it. Anyhow the visit was surprisingly nice and interesting. Go for it !

Very disappointing at first as tanks are mostly empty and not enough information given. Fossils worth looking at. Keep going you will really enjoy the last section

Visited this as part of a Saga special interest Gardens holiday based at Almunecar. The group toured Spanish and Moorish gardens including Alhambra and this little Bonsai Museum ( Cost 1 euro) was part of the half day visiting Public parks and gardens in Almunecar. It was quaintly charming and had quite a personal feel to it compared to the... More

I visited this garden yesterday. The lasting impression was the sorry sight of two Macaws. They were in a small cage with no visible signs of fresh food. Their bowls were empty and their water bowls had some water. On top of their cage was a half full plastic bottle in direct sunlight. I assume this was to refill their... More
