Botanical garden

The Botanical Garden ,designed by the architect Angel of Diego Rica and inaugurated in 2002, is a living museum where vegetation becomes art. It is located within the urban area of the municipality, with several access gates; the main door of the White Garden on La Torre street.

It has an extension of about 60,000 m2, in which we can contemplate more than 300 different woody species and a great diversity of herbaceous plants; all of them ordered in different areas that hide a multitude of secrets and curiosities.
