This is the most ancient botanic garden in Europe. It was in disrepair until it was restored two years ago. Beautiful and clearly labelled plants. The modern tropical areas are well integrated. Will visit again

The Botanical Gardens are quite beautiful, and they have a long history dating back to the 16th century. There is a museum devoted to endangered animals as well as the gardens. A great place to go on a day when the weather is fine.
