icoshbbsvj The Molina del Inca botanic garden is on a sloping site north of Torremolinos on the Costa del Sol in southern Spain. {phocagallery view=category|categoryid=135|imageid=986} 



  The garden takes its name from the flour mill which has been on the site since 1700 and now forms the centre piece of a small museum about flour-milling. 


The surrounding botanical gardens make use of the water as it flows downhill with many fountains and ponds making it a refreshing oasis.   King Alfonso XIII and his wife Victoria Eugenia came to take the waters in 1929.   There are more than 500 species of trees, some more than 100 years old and a collection of 56 species of palm trees from all over the world.   Although not large it is a pleasure to stroll along the well maintained paths which lead from one vista to another.    The most recent addition is a Japanese style garden which boasts a small tea house, pond with a bridge and a sand garden.
