  • Le jardín des plantes (the botanical garden) is a green space that is next to the Seine, entering the Latin Quarter by the pont D'austerlitz. Initially conceived by Louis XIII, and after many swings in its conservation (Colbert's outstanding work) and refaction (e.g. Buffon attached the green labyrinth) it was expanded and transformed into a space of institutions and development linked to the positivist scientists and the theory of evolution.

  • A marvelous season to visit the botanical garden of Paris or garden of plants as it is from direct French translation. The museum of natural history is also located in the park and is much worth visiting. The grand gallery of evolution is a Parisian landmark.
  • A gorgeous garden in the middle of Paris! Go for a walk or visit the little zoo. Have a coffee, brunch or just bring your favourite book and relax. It's a wonderful place
