  • Astronomical garden & Observatory

Welcome to the garden, a land of adventures and unknowns. Explore different natural environments: mineral or organic, wet or dry. Wander around at will, but all the garden paths converge at the footbridge to the Observatory, the magical meeting place of Earth and the Heavens. Gaze upon the universe. Like life upon Earth, the world of the stars is infinitely rich.
