Fodor's Review

Wedged between three busy Palermo streets, this unexpected haven has 18 acres of gardens filled with 5,500 varieties of exotic and indigenous flora. Different sections recreate the environments of Asia, Africa, Oceania, Europe, and the Americas. An organic vegetable garden aims to teach children healthy eating habits. Winding paths lead to hidden statues and a brook that's watched over by an ever-growing population of cats (the gardens are the traditional dumping ground for unwanted porteño pets). The central area contains an exposed-brick botanical school and library, plus a beautiful greenhouse brought from France in 1900 but sadly not open to the public.
