Jardin del Corazon, La Serena

(4.7/5 based on 400+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Garden is beautiful, is well maintained with different types of species of plants and animals, has information panels that tell about the Japanese tradition, the origin of the place and on the species present in the place. You can walk from the Center and while you receive many visits of tourists, is maintained as a very nice space.

  • In our journey on foot through la Serena, going back to the Avenida del Mar, the Japanese garden is located. Well care, safe and enjoyable in the middle is the city. Cost $1000 pesos adults, for a journey that can take 1 hour approx. beautiful landscapes, vegetation and wildlife.

  • A beautiful place, a space of tranquility to the heart. Perhaps to improve the care of the water is green. The rest, perfect. Place not to be missed.
