Description
The Jardin des Plantes has been a place to discover nature for four centuries. Here, you can walk around the Roseraie (rose garden) and the Jardin Alpin (the alpine garden). A wide range of living, naturalized or fossilized species are displayed in the Ménagerie (zoo), the Grande Galerie de l’Evolution and the Galerie de Paléontologie, in an environment that is constantly changing.
