The Town / Main Street, Gibraltar: 53 reviews and 106 photos

 
 

The gardens were opened in 1816 as the Alameda Gardens. The name coming from the Spanish, Alamo, which was a tree grown along the Grand Parade. In the 1970's the gardens fell into disrepair and remained like that until the early 1990's when they were converted into the Gibraltar Botanic Gardens. Today as well as a being a lovely place to visit, they are used for conservation and education puposes. As you walk round them you'll see many plants that are native only to Gibraltar.
