Fodor's Review

As suggested by the paths shaped like a menorah, what is now the city rose garden was once a Jewish cemetery: one tombstone is still visible on the side of the garden across from Valle Murcia, the name for the swamp that once separated this area from the Palatine. The garden is laid out to reflect the history of roses from antiquity to the present day. If you happen to be in town when the roses are in bloom, stop by: it's closed the rest of the year.
