  • Lovely garden with lots of see. Great to wander around and look at the scenery and plants. Was little upset you could not go inside the castle but still a nice place to visit.

  • This is so much more than a beautiful botanic garden, it's a story of the lives, love and legacy of two people. We arrived early and being able to explore the garden virtually alone was truly a magical experience. I could feel the presence of Dorothy as I walked down the steps from house and into the garden with the beautiful views. Lot's lovely places to sit and soak up the atmosphere. Free car park, but if you have a motorhome, don't try freeloading, you have to visit the garden. 10€ for adults or 5€ if you are over 65. What I really didn't like and I tried my best to ignore, we're the awful, out of place "sculptures". Why are they even there? Please get rid of the hideous, tacky bowl of fruit and put it back where it deserves to be in a holiday camp amusement arcade. Having said that, if you can turn a blind eye, you will enjoy the garden.
  • Beautifully maintained gardens. Everything is labelled for identification. Staff are friendly. There is a picnic area and small children's play area. The stone castle looks amazing against the blue skies (cannot go inside). 10€ each in 2022 entrance fee and free if you have la caixa bank account, parking included in the price. of which there is plenty. Very clean toilets inside the grounds and vending machines outside (bottle of water 1€) Fantastic sea views from the beautiful gardens and well worth a visit.
