  • It is the oldest Botanical Garden in France founded by Henri IV. It is to Institute of Botany Herbarium of great value. And while crossing the boulevard Henri IV there is the oldest Faculty of medicine in the Western world. Historical monuments.

  • Visited in February, the garden is at this time of the year little flowery but it is very nice to walk around. Divided into several "spaces", he presents a flora varied in value, with many small signs that indicate the name of many of the species present. Too bad not being able to get into the greenhouse of cacti and Succulents.
