Great botanical gardens in the centre of the city Interesting specimens It was totally free An oasis of calm
This was the garden of medical research for the university but it has much more than medicinal herbs. Lots of interesting palms, but it was no longer the season for flowers and the famed Ginko trees were closed to the public. But you can spend a pleasant hour wandering.
