The photography tax entitles you to take pictures in any of the accessible areas of the garden, which will not be closed to the public.

Use of Drones

ESA’s state law clearly establishes the limits to the uses of drones in public spaces. Therefore, every time the use of a drone will be requested within the Marimurtra Botanical Garden, it will be necessary to:
• Notify it before the presence of one of these aircrafts will be detected.
• Present an official pilot’s license for drones issued by ESA.
• Furnish certification of the corresponding civil liability insurance.
The law does not allow images to be recorded in public spaces where there are two or more people. Therefore, recording with drones in areas open to the public during the opening hours of the Marimurtra Botanical Garden is absolutely prohibited.
Express permission of the Management is required to record images with drones inside the Marimurtra Botanical Garden.
In case of not having the requested permission, the Carl Faust Foundation reserves the right to take legal action against those unlawfully using the garden’s facilities.
