The Jose Celestino Mutis Botanical Garden
Flowers, fountains, trees, and all the tranquillity you could wish for: very inviting!
A long visit.
This is the place to come if you want escape for a good long while. It is also best to come with plenty of time to spare, since it is quite likely that you will lose track of time once you are inside. Although is somewhat out of the way in the north central part of the city, it is well worth a visit for something different to do. Far from being just another of the area's tourist attractions, these gardens are an important study centre and they are working on the revitalization of the country's vegetation here. Once inside, any fan of biology will not have time enough to explore the many enormous gardens. On the other hand, it's worth going just to have a rest among natural surroundings. Sit in the different forests, visit the springs or the roses. If you are looking for a place where you can enjoy some peace, this is perfect.
