Last week here on the blog of Hotel Angela, your hotel in Fuengirola, we recommended you go to Mijas Pueblo to visit a fantastic exhibition about Japan.
Today we would like to continue with the Japanese theme as we would like to recommend you the Molino de Inca Botanical Gardens, some beautiful botanical gardens in Torremolinos that contain a stunning 500 square metre Japanese garden.
The Japanese garden inside the botanical gardens reproduces a gardened area with hillocks and lakes characteristic of the land of the rising sun, known there as Tsukiyama.
Molino de Inca Botanical Gardens are about 4 hectares in extent and are located in Torremolinos, very close to Aquapark and the Crocodile Park.
In there you can find around 400 different bushes, 150 species of palm tree and more than 300 trees, many of them over a century old.
Water is very important in these gardens as there are many fountains, springs and even a lake with some beautiful aquatic plants, fish and even birds. There are also some viewpoints, bird cages with exotic species, a labyrinth and some beautiful marble statues. All this makes it a beautiful spot to take pictures and the perfect place to relax and rest.
Molino de Inca Botanical Gardens are open from 10:30 A.M to 2:00 P.M and from 4:00 P.M to 7:00 P.M. The entry is 3 euros, though children and senior citizens visit for free.
We certainly do recommend you make the most of your holiday at Hotel Angela by visiting Torremolinos and discovering one of the best hidden gems in Costa del Sol.
