The gardens were initially created in 1857 by the Marquis of Casa Loring and his wife and subsequently expanded by their second owners, the Echevrarría-Echevarrieta family, who acquired the estate in 1911. they were officially declared gardens of historical and artistic importance in 1943 and now enjoy BIC (item of Cultural Interest) status. In spring 1990, they were taken over by Malaga City Council, which set up the 'Ciudad de Málaga' botanical trust to oversee their maintenance. They were opened to the public on 20 th June 1994.

The landscape-style gardens are home to an exquisite open-air collection of tropical and subtropical flora. Around them, other gardens and botanical collections have been created with the aim of displaying some of the wide variety of plants to be found on our planet. There are currently over 1000 tropical and subtropical species (including 100 varieties of palm tree) on show here, as well as some 200 autochthonous plants.

In addition to its beautiful gardens, La Concepción is also the scene of a series of educational initiatives in the shape of a workshop in which building, carpentry and gardening skills are all taught. Specific programmes designed for schoolchildren from Málaga and the surrounding area are also provided. A series of laboratories, a herbarium and a seed bank cater for all manner of botanical research tasks.
