  • Very nice place. Too bad we didn't have access to greenhouses and that there is not more organized thematic visits. Other hand, it is a place to appreciate with a book, a solo unit, rather solo...

  • A great tour. Very nice to do, in summer as in winter, with or without children. The place is quiet.

  • If this clear and Nice, go and slowly walk is relaxing... many will say is not the big thing... It is a park and the truth is that it does not differ from others in other cities, but if you have a historical value and within the city stands out much... I recommend pass.
