This botanical garden has huge glass greenhouses that grows plants that are grown in other climates. It grows many varieties of palms, cactuses and many plant species from the African continent. I noticed that the banana trees inside them are unusually tall, havent seen banana trees that tall anywhere else.

Since we went in winter, the amount of blossoming plants were limited, yet a lot of people, especially families flock here. There was a spring flower exhibition while we were there, and it was beautiful!
