Garden Nature / Park
Take a stroll though the manicured gardens at Recinto del Pensamiento, admiring the variety of plant and animal life that have made their home here. Walk along the signposted track, up and down the gentle slopes of the eclectic manicured gardens. Stop at the relaxing Japanese-themed garden for a break, accompanied by the light tinkling sound of water flowing through fountains, and ponds filled with koi carp. Snap photos of the feathered residents of the hummingbird garden as they flutter around their feeding points. Head to the visitor center to arrange a tour of the gardens--conducted only in Spanish--to learn about the flora, fauna, and history of the plot. See Recinto del Pensamiento and all Manizales has to offer by arranging your trip with our Manizales vacation trip planner.
