Jardin des plantes, Coutances
(4.5/5 based on 150+ 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.
