We walked through the garden after touring the university and library and cathedrals. It was nice to get out of the sun.

Medium sized botanical garden with good paths and signage. Nice to compare how early some plants are flowering compared to UK. Some areas closed when we visited but they will be open later in the year. Massive mangrove tree. Recommended.

Its free! It is a very quiet and beautiful place in the middle of the city! And It is the right place to read a book, or just lay in a seat and chill for some minutes. You also have some tables perfect for picnics....More

This place is really great, a lot of wonderful species of plants and trees but it seems that is a little neglected. Good place for walk and relax.

Went in the afternoon just for a walking. Superb. Really nice place, lots of hidden spots to have a good reading or just talking and taking photos. Recommended!
