After going to the markets we walked around the gardens, it was really cool seeing the sculptures around the lake and even the large museum which was sadly closed! There is some geothermal springs here too. It's an easy walk to go around the area and explore. You will see a lot, and there is a park here which is good for families!

Beautiful garden!



Unfortunately the beautiful museum in the park is surrounded by work fences. But it's still a nice place.
