Cosmovitral Jardin Botanico, Toluca

4.7
#1 of 9 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.

  • Beautiful botanical garden in the center of Toluca. Before was the famed market September 16 where Frida Kahlo went to buy some food (there are photographs on the subject) I liked last remodelling of the place, the former already looked a little worn, the only bad thing was that I found the tree of hands not be if already removed it or re placed (tree popular in Toluca) Malo was to see the face of the Peña Nieto mounted on a model, since they remove it from the place, is in bad taste. Very affordable entry cost 10 pesos.
