  • Small botanical garden with many plants, little streams and fish. Very nice place for a walk and a rest and beautiful pictures  more »
  • A beautiful park which we came back too. Shaded by the stunning varieties of palms, there are cacti and flowers too as well as water features with turtles basking in the sunshine.  more »
