The Bonsai Museum in Marbella is one of the best in Europe, and its attractions include the largest collection of wild olive trees in the world. The museum houses 300 miniature trees from 40 different species. This is one of the greatest places for the whole family to visit.
The collection makes an impression on visitors from start to finish and invites us to reflect on the marvels of nature. Of particular interest are such interesting specimens as the hackberry – from China, with bright green deciduous leaves – and a 300 year old wild olive tree.
The Bonsai Museum in Marbella also has miniature native species from the rich natural environment in the surrounding area. Some, such as the Spanish fir trees, are threatened with extinction, and all are genuine works of art which are worthy of admiration.
