Do not try and go here, they have had a terrible fire and the place is derelict and there is nothing to see other than charred remains. Poor things, we met with a lady here and feel very sorry for them.

A secret garden hidden in the city. If you like orchids and plants this is a place to visit. 5€/visitor. Nice lady keeps the place up and running and answers to questions. Kid loved the rainforest feel.

A little out of the way and a must for lovers of shabby chic, but well worth making the effort. With some of the worlds treasures this place alone made the trip to mederia worth wile.
