A beautiful oasis in sunny Montpellier. Strolling through these huge gardens you get a brilliant sense of peace and tranquility. It seems like many people come here just to relax among nature. Since I discovered it I have been back twice and may have had a cheeky nap myself...

This beautiful garden is the perfect break from the crowds of the central city. Some local road construction made it a bit confusing to find our way, but not too much of an obstacle. There is an old observatory, near a beautiful pond, but no signage to explain its origins or history of use. We were disappointed that we could... More

We were walking the old city, and needed a place with a shed to relax a bit and rest. And Jardin des Plantes provided that. It is nice for a walk around, does have some nice plants and greenery, but not that much of a garden feeling with flowers. Many youngsters were having a picnic on the grounds, so seems... More

Such a romantic and peaceful place! It was founded by Henri IV, a French king, to grow medicinal herbs and plants for use by the Medical School nearby in Montpellier. But it so pretty! A great place to take lots and lots of photos.

Quite a climb to get to the tower but worth it. Temple of Diana was more accessible. Its more park like rather than garden as very few flowers

If you like nature you should definitely go there. It is not very big and also it looks like it hasn't been taken care of for a while. The entrance is a little hard to find - it is on the side.

Visited twice and both times. A lovely park a d appeared well kept - enjoyed the walk around in the heat wave ! Free entry and worth a visit - a nice pond with loads of wildlife evident.

It is very interesting garden.....beautiful. The only problem can be some misbehaviour of students! I dont like what they do to all the parks here in Montpellier. But the place could be just heaven!
