  • The council has announced that it will not provide an alternative space for the plants

The official Andalucía tourism web page states that the Bonsai Museum in Marbella is one of the best in Europe. What's more, the page also claims that it has one of the most prevalent collections of wild olive trees in the world.

However, despite this, it has been confirmed that from 16 November the renowned museum will permanently close.

In March it was announced that the space would be replaced by a public library, despite being one of only four types of this museum in Spain.

The town's councillor for Culture insists the owner is responsible for finding an alternative space for the 265 varieties of plants and that the council will not provide one.
