Jardin des plantes, Coutances

(4.6/5 based on 160+ reviews on the web)
One of the oldest gardens in Normandy, Jardin des plantes was created during the Second Empire between 1852 and 1855, thanks to a bequest from the Quesnel de La Morinière family. The gardens offer you a beautiful blend of French symmetry, English-style groves, and Italianate terraces. A collection of rare trees, patterned floral beds, and a maze combine to make this the perfect place to stroll and get away from the bustle of travel. This site has also been listed as a historic monument since 1992. Put Jardin des plantes into our Coutances itinerary maker and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.

  • In the spring and summer, this is the place to visit in Coutances. The garden is beautiful and there is a different theme each year, that can be found in the flower beds and the mozaicultures. Can be accessed throughout the year, but autumn flowering is less spectacular, despite the efforts of gardeners in the city and in the winter, some stands are empty. There are games for children, parts of water in the shade and Sun, benches, statues and even a 'maze', at the top of which we have great views of the Park.
