Nice peaceful garden to wander round even in late October/early November. It must be even more colourful in the warmer months.

After a morning of touring, we stopped nearby, bought some sandwiches, and found a park bench to relax and eat lunch. It was very peaceful and a little cooler than on the street.

Here its seems one can always find a shady bench under the wonderful collection of palms. Several beautiful churches are located inside, with nice views to the countryside beyond the garden's border. The garden is small, and does not take much time to see.

We spent a couple of hours here: great spot to eat a packed lunch, then to walk along an avenue of palm trees, admire views of the valleys around, dip into one or two historic buildings. Worth a detour. Un pèlerin.

Good sized gardens with great views over the surrounding countryside. There are a number of seating areas, play area for kids and a cafe. There is also a church. A good place to stop and rest after hiking around Ibla !
