It is filled with beautiful and interesting trees and plants, large fields of grass, marshy trails along the river and a magical energy that fills your soul with peace and tranquility.

I can't go to Valdivia and not visit the botanical garden. It’s my favorite place in the city. There's always a good atmosphere, children laughing and playing, old people resting in the benches... I love trees so sometimes I wish there could be even more information about them, there are some signs that have been removed or have faded away... More

I borned in Valdivia and i really love this place. It's really quiet and you can visit all the year. During Autumn you see all the leafs, changing colors, breathe fresh air and amuse with all the beautiful nature. As a local , i can say that this is a must visit place :)

This is an unusual garden in that it’s all trees. Not a flower in sight that I could see. The effect is wonderful: relaxing and intriguing given the stateliness and grandeur of the huge mature trees. Their song, if there is any wind at all, is captivating. Allow an hour to stroll, not hustle, through this experience. If you have... More
