Bordeaux's Jardin Botanique (botanical gardens) is a must for gardeners and plant lovers, with 10 hectares (25 acres) devoted to the conservation of local flora and biodiversity. Bordeaux has had a botanical garden since 1629, but this garden was created in 2003 to breathe new life into the Bastide quarter. In the park's middle sections you'll find eleven gardens that reconstitute the Aquitaine's flora, including those found in the dune regions on the west coast, the limestone cliffs, the humid wetlands and the Landes marshes.
