Torre del Vinagre Botanical Garden

This large botanical garden boasts a broad and well-kept selection of plants from the Nature Reserve, ranging from small grasses to big trees. It is the perfect place to observe and learn how to identify plants or simply to enjoy a pleasant stroll amidst lush vegetation. Your visit will help you to understand that the extraordinary botanic wealth of these mountains is one of the main reasons why they were declared a Protected Area. Admission is free.


The Garden shows all the different plant formations that can be found naturally in the Nature Reserve, depending on the altitude and humidity, including alpine plants, Corsican pine, groves of deciduous trees and riparian forests. There is a space dedicated to the species that are exclusive to the Nature Reserve (endemisms), such as the Cazorla violet.

We recommend…

  • The Garden is perfect for visiting all year round, but the best times are autumn when the leaves of the deciduous trees are bright yellow and in spring you can see some of the indigenous plants in flower.
  • It is worth keeping an eye open for the events organised at the Garden, such as the workshops on photography, medicinal plants and plant dyes. There are also activities for children. Admission is free and the activities are of a very high standard. You can call or subscribe to the Garden’s mailing list.
  • Torre del Vinagre is one of the most strategic spots in the Nature Reserve and boasts a Visitor Centre, the starting point of the emblematic Borosa river itinerary. Plan for an entire day.
