  • A historic place, but it has been neglected for a long time. The gardens and lake should be beautiful places, but it doesnt look beatiful any more, just old and dirty..and nothing tells you about his ...  more »
  • Es un lugar tranquilo y relajante, ubicado en el mero centro de Cuernavaca y es ideal para caminar solo, con la pareja o familia, los domingos hay ventas de artesanías. Se ve un poco descuidado. 
  • Después de tener muchos años de no visitarlo, acudí con mi familia para que mis hijos los conocieran. Solo la mitad está abierta al público y se ve un tanto abandonado... no es lo que solía ser.

  • Nice place to relax, sometimes there are special events with typical food and handcrafts.
  • Large tranquil garden, interesting history.
  • Captivating cultural center. In the last months (2015) restoration work has been done in the garden, and passing is not allowed beyond the art exhibitions.
  • Nice place
  • Beautiful gardens
