  • The Botanical Garden is not very big. It is easy to reach by public transport. The ticket costs €2050. It has a nice greenhouse. Go there in may!

  • Relaxing ride among plants and fiori...ma could be kept better!!! It would take a path with more explanations.

  • It is a small, leafy oasis in the city! It has nothing special having no other botanical gardens, but it is always pleasant and refreshing to give a walk inside and a great activity with young children so that they run in the greenery of its interior. If the sky is clear and blue, are great photos!

  • I loved visiting this garden. It was bigger than I expected, especially considering the low entrance fee, and I loved that there were cute cats roaming around. Would definitely recommend a visit to the botanical gardens as part of your trip to Valencia! Bonus: go for a coffee at Mayan Coffee (very nearby) before/after you visit the garden. Best coffee in Valencia :)
  • lovely location to have a rest for an hour or two. plenty of seats and toilets! reduced entrance fee if over 65..just 2.50
  • Fantastic selection of plants to see from all around the world. Good way to spend a couple of hours.
  • Nice place for nice price. You can walk a little bit around or you can just bring your book and sit on one of many benches and enjoy this green and calm place. It's not the biggest botanical garden but you can find many interesting plants there.
  • It is a bit away from the main tourist attractions. The garden is interesting, but unfortunately almost everything is only in Spanish.
