Many species of plants here

Some amazing trees. Worth a stroll here to get some shade but the city noise you will not escape from.

It's a nice place to walk through in the middle of the city. You can go with an ice cream or with a coffe, so make your walking more amazing. If you don't like cats, prepare because there are lots of them, but they won't get near you if you don't want.

The botanic gardens are nice enough as a break from the bustle of the city. It is probably best to go as a couple because of the amount of star crossed lovers we saw there. There are an awful lot of signs telling you to keep off the grass - it gets to the point of being aggressive. I think... More

This place is a very nice place to visit. If you're short on time you can find other places to visit but if you're passing by Santa Fe you should visit as it is a very nice place

Even though there were cars on the streets just outside the gardens there was peace and quiet within. I enjoyed just chilling out on the benches and wandering around the different parts of the gardens.

a lovely little oasis away from the hustle and bustle of the city. we combined visiting here with a trip to the zoo, which is just around the corner. it is home to all the local stray cats, so expect to see many moggies lazing around the place, which is nice to see in such a dog centric city. the...

The botanical garden, located in the Palermo district, was a wonderful shaded respite from a hot Buenos Aires day. There are soothing water features, an antique greenhouse and gardens of classic Roman, French and Asian style, plus thousands of plants, including such exotica as the California redwood. Cat lovers will enjoy glimpses of the large feral population in residence. The... More

The gardens a situated in a busy area of the city and is a welcome diversion from the hustle and bustle. At the same time the proximity to the noise and pollution detracts from its ability to be a place of peace and serenity. In addition, the gardens do not have too much variety.

Staying in Palermo

Neighborhood Profile
Palermo
Best known as the largest neighborhood in Buenos Aires, Palermo is divided into different quarters, each with its own unique identity. The high-end quarter is Palermo Chico, characterized by magnificent mansions, regal avenues, and exclusive apartment buildings, and home to the Museum of Latin American Art of Buenos Aires (MALBA), a favorite amongst locals. The largest park in the city, the Bosques de Palermo, is Palermo's most famous landmark and a popular destination for nature walks, picnics, rollerblading, and cycling. The scene becomes much trendier in Palermo Soho, a hip area known for its cool cafés and unique design stores, filled with shoppers on weekends; and Palermo Hollywood, renowned for the numerous restaurants, bars and nightclubs, which make it the preferred spot for nights out and special occasions.
