Inspirock Rating:
4.5/5 based on 140+ 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.

  • It would be a shame not to visit the garden plants if you are passing in Coutances. However, it is totally unnecessary to make a detour to this city only to this garden that is worthless! Large gone all lines that intersect at 90 °. A sober vegetation, without exuberance... Once we did the tour, there is no want to go back!

  • It's a small garden that does not leave indifferent. It is a few steps from the Cathedral and deserves to be visited for its originality. They have forms of animals with plants and what are super careful. It is tiny, and very pleasant. No doubt somewhere surprising in such a small town.
