Stroll through the National Garden

In 1838, Queen Amelia, the wife of King Otto, commissioned this 38 acre public park that also includes some ancient ruins. She enjoyed the garden so much that she spent at least three hours a day, personally taking care of it. Escape the hustle and bustle of the city with a visit to this oasis of greenery. Shaded by eucalyptus trees, its benches make for an ideal spot to relax and enjoy nature. Many locals also use this public area for reading and exercising.
