The Huerto del Cura, declared in 1943 National Artistic Garden, has an area of 12,000 m2. In its interior a whole series of Mediterranean and tropical plants are harmoniously distributed in an atmosphere of tranquility and rest where the palm trees, authentic protagonists of the garden, give it its particular aspect.
You can also enjoy its wide collection of palms and cacti, from all corners of the world, with many species adapted to our climate. The botanical garden of the Huerto del Cura has the widest variety of palm trees in Spain.
In addition to the palm trees, other typical crops of the Spanish Mediterranean grow in the Huerto del Cura, such as lemon, orange, pomegranate, carob and azofaifos, along with others of subtropical climate that through time have been making a spectacular collection of plants from the most exotic places in the world.
But the most outstanding jewel for its rarity is the Imperial Palm: unique example of date palm with seven arms born from the same trunk that feeds them, which for its beauty and symmetry is an exceptional case among the palms. His name is owed to the Empress Elisabeth of Austria “Sissí”, who was dedicated by Chaplain Castaño when he visited the garden in 1894.
