    Beautiful place. A lot of diversity not only Botany, but also of animal specimens. A climate of peace and tranquillity. Some specific exhibitions. Check the schedule.

    The Botanical Garden is beautiful, with lush flora, good crowd and friendly staff. Is charged a small fee of six real to have access to the Park (worth every penny). The place needs to make of water troughs to its regulars. We were there, and along the tour of the garden, which is great, we couldn't find a drinker even (except one, which seemed to be disabled for years). The only way to find drinking water for consumption is buying in a local diner. Other than that, nothing.
