Orchid House in Estepona Municipality in Málaga Province

By Nick Nutter | 24 Jan 2018

Update 26th August 2015

Since the Orchid House in Estepona opened early this year the plants have settled down. The original mass of blooms on hundreds of orchids has gone to be replaced with orchids now flowering in their own season against a backdrop of established shrubs and semi-tropical perennials. It all looks that much more natural. Some of the shrubs are now showing fruit indicating they are happy with their environment.

Many of the orchids are shy, they hide amongst the shrubbery. Every curve of the path reveals something new. It really is a great place to spend half an hour or so. The photo gallery now shows ten orchids in flower in August.

A Stunning Display of Orchids

The Estepona Orchid House is the largest in Europe and is home to 8,000 species of orchids selected to provide a stunning display whenever you visit. The house is divided into two main areas, one concentrating on Asian species, the other on South American. Complete with a 56 ft high waterfall and a small pool, the Orchid House is in the centre of town surrounded by 5 kilometers of flower bedecked streets. The area around the orchid house is being planted up as a botanical garden.  Estepona’s unofficial title of El Jardin de la Costa del Sol is well deserved.

How to get there

The orchid house is situated at the top end of Calle Terreza, Estepona, Malaga
