Parque La Muralla - Botanical Gardens and walls of Mijas - Paseo de la Muralla, 29650 Mijas, Málaga

The botanical gardens spread along the hilltop and the old defensive walls of Mijas. There are a variety of different types of plant, all labelled with details of the species. The views across Fuengirola and the Mediterranean Sea are astounding, as you can see from the image in the photo gallery. What is truly unusual, though, is the gorge that runs through the centre of the gardens, where mountain climbers test their skills.
