The idea of creating this garden came from a couple's trip to Europe, Jorge Loring Oyarzával and Amalia Heredia Livermore - Marquis of Loring. In 1855 they purchased various properties where they grew citrus fruits, almonds and olives. The French gardener Chamousst was assigned to select the plants for the garden. After the Loring-Heredia family went bankrupt, the Echevarría-Echevarrieta family bought the land, improving and increasing the number of botanic species. In 1943 it was officially declared a Historical Artistic Garden and in 1990 it became property of Malaga's City Council. The Botanic Garden has vegetation unique to Spain and Europe, such as sago palms, hundred year old palm trees and rubber plants, as well as having various waterfalls, pergolas, greenhouses and a number of ponds, giving this corner of Malaga a captivating touch.
