Cosmovitral Jardin Botanico, Toluca

4.6
#1 of 22 in Parks in Estado de Mexico
Brush up on your botany in an attractive Art Nouveau structure at Cosmovitral Jardin Botanico. Erected in 1910, the building housed a popular market until 1975. The spacious glass and concrete structure was converted into a botanical garden in 1980, and features colorful art by Leopoldo Flores. View over 500 local and international plant species, and marvel at the large stained glass windows and murals. Look for the "Sun Man" glass mural, a symbol of Toluca: depicting a man in harmony with nature, it aligns with the sun on the spring equinox.

  • To have a good time... very nice but very small, it runs quickly. If you are lucky enough to find guides that tell you about the meaning of the stained glass windows would be excellent!

  • The place is cute, however did not seem right that they charge you the brochure where comes the information/explanation of the cosmovitral since you already paid to enter. In any way that information they found online, it is worth to investigate it.

  • My favorite place in Toluca. The botanic garden is beautiful and the history that the crystals give you is amazing. You need to stop by here if you are in Toluca for sure
  • Amazing place, you will fall in love with the space, the colors and the gardens. Very well maintained and affordable price (10 pesos almost 50 cents of a dollar).
  • An amazing, intriguing place. As you walk you can see the beautiful masterpieces put together with stained glass, you can see a huge amount of different -exotic- plants. Everything is so green, so colorful. There are fishes in what looks as an asian themed space. You can also find cactus and lots of flowers. The place is so organized and well planned. And when the sun hits the stained glass, the lighting is incredibly beautiful. When you are near the exit, you can notice the little store they have, it iss more like a glass desk where you can see the mugs, shirts, keyholders, etc. The stained glass structure is completely unexpensive and an amazing place to go to, so relaxing, so creative. The catching thing, for someone who has not been in a place where subterranean surrounding are common, is that the restroms are below the first floor, so instead of typical stairs to go up, you go down. Another thing that got my attention was that there were a couple pigeons flying around, you know being a curious person made me wonder how they got in... It might be a silly thing to point out since there are several explanations to it, but I like questioning everything that gives me the chance to do so.
  • There are not more plants inside Cosmo! It was supposed to be a botanical garden, and now you can't find variety of flowers and plants
  • Love this place, this should be on the top of the list for any tourist or local, it is loaded with colors and details on all of the glasses, it is surrounded by nature an water that brings this place to live, highly recommended is not big but it is worth it :)
