Jardin de l’Arquebuse
Home to the Natural History Museum, this park includes a botanical garden and arboretum. It’s not only a relaxing and stunning place to go for a walk, or take a break from sightseeing, but it is also a fascinating learning experience. In the 16th century, this was the residence of the musketeers regiment, and after the Revolution it became national property until a scientist turned a part of the grounds into a botanical garden. Today the vast green space holds great scientific interest, particularly the medicinal garden, a living biodiversity repository nurturing over 2500 varieties that are the subject of the yearly academic catalogue of medicinal plant varieties.
