  • Lovely garden of ancients african primary forest plants and some other imported plants from abroad, where you still can see a certain specy of monkeys in their natural environment. Former private garden of french governor in porto novo during colonisation. It's just a mixture of nature and history!!
  • Impressive site, loaded with cultural histories of the land and different types of.medicinal plants.
  • Located near the ministry of the interior, this garden contains old and important trees.
  • A little forest in the city. Very peaceful and beautiful, but small. A good place to take shelter from the heat of the sun and read your book, but not particularly interesting for any other reason. There are two parts on either side of the street, one is more dense forest and has only 1 bench near the gate, the other is more of a clearing with benches, a restaurant and a playground- still well shaded. A man tried to get us to pay for entry, but we refused. He put up quite a fight, but no fees are posted, no one mentions it in the comments on google, and it says it’s free online. If this happens to you, don’t bend! Simply to walk around is, in fact, free.
  • Feel the nature, breathe fresh air and take a drink..... Best one in Benin Republic capital city!
