Trip Planner : South America / Uruguay / Montevideo Department / Montevideo / Parks / Jardin Botanico
Jardin Botanico, Montevideo
Categories: Gardens, Nature & Parks
Examine a collection of Uruguayan plant life at Jardin Botanico, about 30 minutes by bus from the center of Montevideo. Despite a lack of quality maintenance, the shabby gardens still warrant a visit if you want to get a taste for typical Uruguayan vegetation. Drop by the museum at the gardens' entrance at Avenue 19 April, which contains plenty of information about plant physiology and an impressive botanical library. Bring a picnic and join the locals for a relaxed afternoon on the gardens' grassy fields. To visit Jardin Botanico on your trip to Montevideo, use our Montevideo vacation route planner.

On Sundays there is a craft fair, which is well sought after by tourists and by Uruguayans. In the remaining days is frequented by residents of the region and students of Botany. I also suggest visiting the Botanical Museum and herbarium. The Botanical Garden is of 1902 (later expanded) and the Rosedal is 1912 (with over 300 types of Roses). You can taste the typical chivito in the pizzeria Rodelu or go to the restaurant Malandrino which is two blocks away (or any other that is there). The Park is not 100% careful, but worth the visit, walk in place, for those who like to craft, walking outdoors, Botany, flowers, roses, to see the 60 m long pergolas 4 (the Rosedal). The Prado has mansions and old mansions from the 19th and 20th centuries. Pretty wooded neighborhood.show original
