Decided on a quiet stroll through the gardens before making our way back through the town. Away from the hustle on constant traffic. Well worth the visit. The entrance is near the cable car line.

Beautiful gardens, very well kept, but many unsteady steps so be careful. The tiny nature reserve in the centre was lovely to visit.
