  • We conducted a guided tour and our guide was spectacular, very well explained and very helpful with. The truth is that it is very careful and very nice.

  • It is magical to see all variety in have. The best under my point of view are the shows that make the evenings, what if you have the possibility of going is worthwhile without hesitation.

  • We will much Gijon because we have friends there and we had never gone to the Botanical Garden... We took advantage of a cloudy day (as if there were few, lol) and went from there delighted to... so much together nature, great smell... mmm... even the forest the children we loved and that we are already pretty adult lol... We regret not having known that we could eat there perfectly and bringing us a picnic must take flat at the entrance, not to miss because it is huge... that if, by putting a snag: gentlemen responsible for the Botanical Garden, is very CUMBERSOME to charge 10 cents for a spreadsheet... Why don't you go up 5 cents entrance, you win more money (don't think many single people will) and not stay so badly?

  • Nice place to pass an afternoon. The garden is very big and well kept. The entrance is also very cheap (less than 3€ or less than 2€ for under 26)
  • One of the places you should visit un Gijón!
  • Well worth the small entrance fee. Loads of edible plants. We could have spent much longer here.
  • Stunning garden, well kemt and tranquil
  • This is Asturias' best nursery for gardening enthusiasts. A beautifully designed and maintained sales area, tucked into the corner of the Botanic Gardens along a rushing stream. The entrance is on the left side (east side) of the Botanic Gardens parking lot, down a pergola covered stone ramp. Entrance to the nursery is free, and THEY ARE OPEN THROUGHOUT THE DAY - no siesta time break, and they are open all year long, six days a week (closed Mondays I think). The nursery has an extensive web presence on their website, Facebook, Google+, with loads of information and hundreds of photos they have taken themselves of the plants they have on offer, their new acquisitions, etc. I use this nursery frequently when I need to order in special plants for my garden. The store often runs fun contests on Facebook where they photograph a specimen plant or planting somewhere in Gijón or Oviedo and the first person to identify where and what it is wins a small prize. Sometimes they offer special lectures or presentations on topics such as pruning hydrangeas, caring for bonsai, plants suitable for rock gardens etc. I return to this nursery again and again, and you will too once you have seen it.
