We had spoken to the German girls pitched up next door. They had visited the Botanical Gardens and said it was worth a look.
So with that in mind we set off on the bikes. It was a very steep descent.
The garden was impressive.
The water is from a reservoir at the top of the hill and is pumped back up the hill in a continuous cycle.
It's one way of preserving water. Which is a necessity hereabouts.
Malaga has a very temperate climate and as such a lot of the plants flourish here from all over the world.
It has over 100 different palm trees.
There's over 2500 different varieties and 205 separate species. Now that's something I didn't know.
This is the palm tree section of the garden. The gardens were originally a rich persons private garden with the big house to go with it.
Now it's a world renowned and protected place.
It cost just ove 4 pounds to get in real value for money.
We climbed back up to the site. On the way down to the gardens we saw a crowd and on investigation it was a proper locals market. Just like the ones we used to have in the UK .
We are expecting heavy rain all day tomorrow. As we are perched on the side of a mountain are options are limited. There's storm warnings in place so we will keep our fingers crossed that we are not swept away.
