It is one of those huge gardens which is well kept and even with so many people it is not crowded at all. In case you are on a tight schedule u can omit it from your plans.

Antique dealers and art galleries surround the fine
art school and small museums hide in unassuming
squares. The neighbourhood’s namesake church is the
