  • Compared to other botanical gardens is quite manageable, but very nice. A nice walk and you discovered many außergewöhnlliche plants. He is also not much visited, which is a great pity. It is recommended to take a "guide", because there are almost no signs that explain something. Unless it's botanist. We met an international group of bird watchers, which means that a lot is also available for those. It is recommended in any case.

  • Visit in July impossible because of the mosquitoes. Greenhouses medium-sized but beautiful trees (Palm trees, fig trees...)

  • We were lucky enough to have to guide an extraordinary man named Hermes (the Messenger of the gods). This botanist who made the guide here talking about all languages, including the french, has the phone number of all the birds (which it does come) and give full of humor and poetry exciting explanations. Of course, the garden was abandoned but it is rich in many species of birds, trees and plants. Not to do without a guide because then you would spend next to a treasure. For us, the explanations of Hermes made this visit one of the highlights of our trip.
