Jardin des Plantes

Interesting
This lovely garden was created in 1805 and redesigned from 1830 to 1850. The countryside landscape contains several fountains and wooden sculptures and is home to 11,000 species of trees and flowers, and 800 m2 of greenhouses (humid equatorial and desert tropics). As it stands opposite the station, it makes a great waiting room!
