Botanical Park & Gardens Of Crete, Fournes

#7 of 69 in Parks in Chania Prefecture
Explore the natural world on the isle of Crete at Botanical Park & Gardens Of Crete, where ornamental plants and fruit trees flourish alongside local flora. The dry air and bright sun provide a climate for many varieties of growth, and trails break through the greenery and weave under citrus trees and flowering plants. Events in the open-air amphitheater include concerts, tastings, folk music, and dancing. A small fee grants you access to the oasis of fruit-bearing trees and multi-colored flowers, but you can visit the on-site restaurant without a ticket to the gardens.

  • I can’t find the words for this location. It is beautiful and it is not your usual botanical Garden. There is a lot of walking and different flowers, trees with fruits and even a couple of animals. We enjoyed this walk so much that if we were to come back to Crete we would visit it again. For 6 euros (entrance ticket) they give you slices of oranges and a bottle of water to keep you hydrated.
