Jardín Botánico Carlos Thays review Rate it

Designed by celebrated French landscaper Charles Thays and inaugurated in 1898, BA's botanical garden is slightly shabby but nonetheless tranquil and full of fascinating flora. Thousands of species (and feral cats) flourish here, and fountains, orchids, cacti, ferns and spectacular trees make this a paradise for anyone who likes pottering around in the garden.

The cats are not feral but miraculously tame and friendly and sit on your lap when you are on the many park benches. This is a magical place, well laid out, and serene with a large central building that houses temporary exhibits.
