“Beautiful quiet retreat”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2013

A bit away from the center of the city, but very pleasant to spend a few hours in the shade of the enormous diversity of trees and plants. For only 3 euros extra you can get a guide to give you interesting details on a walking tour of about 1.5 hours.

“Escape for peace & quiet”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2013

We were pleasantly surprised with the gardens. Followed the suggested walk, but the 'forest walk' is not worth adding to your visit.

Do not use the local bus! It does not go to the entrance.The hop on hop off bus has a special service to the gardens costing 1.50 euros each way.The problem is trying to find the bus stops!

Well established garden with specimen trees, providing shade and interest on a hot summer's day. A favourite for centuries.

“Nice Botanic Garden”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 16, 2013

You can spend a few very agradable hours there. Easy walking between the trees and flowers.

However it is a challange to find it by car, even with GPS. Your chances are increased when you find "Ciudad Jardin".
