Jardin del Corazon, La Serena

4.8
Stroll the gardens of Jardin del Corazon, a Japanese-themed park dedicated to the twinning of La Serena and the Japanese city of Tenri. Built in 1994 with support from Japanese mining companies in Chile, the garden was designed by architect Akira Ohira. Roam along picturesque cherry trees and koi ponds, passing small bridges and undulating paths, or rest on a bench and watch ducks, swans, and turtles. Don't miss the park's bonsai tree collection.

    Wonderful space specially designed for mental relaxation and also body-perhaps there is stress due to work or emotional overload. This garden is a point of connection with nature and the spirit you want adequate space to meditate. Various elements combined in harmony make a break for the overloaded city life. Highly recommended visit.

    A beautiful place that rescues the Japanese-style gardens with birds and fish. lagoons, drops of water, lighting and beautiful pergolas typical of Japan. It has a greenhouse with a few bonzai, slightly sloppy but an effort to permeate the atmosphere of an Eastern spirit is seen. In short a beautiful Japanese corner in the middle of the city of La Serena.

    Very peaceful and well-maintained Japanese garden. Worth a visit if you're into this sort of thing (I spent 10-15 minutes there, it's not very big). Skip it if you're not.

    Small peaceful garden... But your not allowed to sit or lay in the grass
  • August 5, 2017
    A magical with beautiful landscapes, each site to which the eye is perfect for a photograph, animals living in an environment of peace with the visitors, noting that entry to just $1,000 CLP is insignificant compared to the beauty of the garden itself, must see for those who travel sector.

Where to stay in La Serena

La Serena provides a varied selection of sleeping options, with the area between the main bus station and the town center featuring at least one hostel on every street. Despite this abundance of lodgings, many hotels book up fast at the height of the tourist season (summer: January-February), and some refuse visitors on single-night stays. If you're looking for the ultimate in space and comfort, consider renting a furnished apartment on the coastline.
