This is the place where you can relax and just enjoy the view. You can even bring a book and read at your heart's content. The place is fabulous with different flowers in bloom. It is well maintained and very clean.

Visited the gardens whilst wandering around Bourges. They are pretty and a nice place to spend a short while. There’s a small café and a little play area in a well shaded part of the gardens which was good for the little one.

This garden is located next to the St Etienne Cathedral. This is the location where you can take a strategic photo of the entire church outline. Love the brightly coloured blooms. Brought cheers to the cloudy weather.

Very good place where to have a very nice sightseeing on the cathedral. They are clean and very good for people with kids.

This garden offers great views on the cathedral during the day (it is closed at night). There is a place where you can sit and order a drink.

The gardens surrounding the cathedral are very tranquil and beautiful. Worth a visit if your stopping in at the cathedral. You can spend between 10 mins - 30 mins enjoying the scenery and taking a few photos. The gardens are located within the city, quite...More
