The Buenos Aires Botanical Garden, designed by landscape architect Carlos Thays, was opened in September 1898.It is located in the neighbourhood of Palermo, across the street from the Zoo. Although the botanical garden is surrounded by the din of the traffic and the hustle and bustle of a big city, it is an oasis of tranquility, where people can take a respite from their hectic life.

I stumbled on BA’s botanical gardens entirely by accident, after walking for hours and hours aroound the city. It was a wonderful, relaxing place and I stayed for ages.
It is a great place to rest one’s weary feet 🙂
