Jardín Botánico Carlos Thays
Jardín Botánico Carlos Thays Review
With 18 acres of gardens and 5,500 varieties of exotic and local flora, the Carlos Thays Botanical Garden is an unexpected green haven wedged between three busy Palermo streets. Different sections re-create the environments of Asia, Africa, Oceania, Europe, and the Americas. Among the treasures is the Chinese "tree of gold," purportedly the only one of its kind. An organic vegetable garden aims to teach children healthy habits. Winding paths lead to hidden statues, a brook, and past the resident cats and dragonflies. The central area contains a beautiful greenhouse, brought from France in 1900, and the exposed-brick botanical school and library.
