It was a welcome break from the main street. A deli... More

We can tell from the photos what is snowy mountain vs cloud but to an unknowing eye it looks like all cloud. The pond, the birds, the winding paths and well positioned benches made for a nice way to spend an... More

such a lovely place, peaceful with fascinating views. The streets leading to these gardens make a very interesting walk with orange trees by the road side.

These beautiful gardens have lovely views from the terrace and are well worth a visit. There are lots of seats and it is a good place to relax away from the bustle of the main tourist area.
