  • Have visited the Botanical Garden of Valencia. A couple of years ago there was a preponderance of nasty stray cats. But now put things in order and cats instead of hundreds in just a couple of strolls, causing tenderness. For me this place is an oasis of tranquillity where you can sit on a bench, breathing in the aromas of the herbs.

  • Even in the early spring (March) is worth a visit to the Botanical Garden. You can find all kinds of plants and trees. The large palm trees and cacti are a feast for the eyes. Also in the park Street cats captured and these run through the whole garden.

  • A botanical garden, nice, pleasant, rich in different vegetation from around the world. And if you're a cat lovers I recommend it because it's full! cats everywhere! Costs 2 euros so I recommend going there to relax and stroll in there.
