La Concepcion historical gardens

The gardens origins go way back with the combining of several estates. It became very popular in the 1800's for it's beauty and archaeological remains. In 1990 Malaga council purchased the property and opened it to the general public. This is a great place to visit the paths around the gardens are amazing. There is a restaurant / cafe in the gardens and a visit is recommended. Next to the gardens is the embalse de limonera (Lemon tree reservior). Its a short walk up hill but not only looks down on the gardens but also fantastic views of Malaga.
