    This Botanical Garden looks rather like a park: you learn nothing about plants, however it is an ideal place for a break or a picnic. It is besides useful n ° 1 for locals. Free entry.

    Normally a free accessible park, during the ' Feria del Flores ' in August a kind of keukenhof. Very busy, but beautifully decorated park where, in particular, the premises of the wild flowers. Despite the crowds it was fine slow down there, no smog but fine nature. And the ' food truck ' like food court made sure we still until after dinner are stuck. This beoordelijk is so purely for the Feria de Flores, how it normally is in this park, I don't know.
