Description
Ancient Royal Garden, this place has developed during the centuries and contains now the gardens itself, the Museum of Natural History and the Menagerie.
At the Jardin des Plantes, you will discover the Alpine Garden which, created in 1938, contains 2000 mountain plants from all over the world, the rose garden, the iris garden, the Botany School's Garden, where 4500 species are labelled and regrouped by families.
