Brush up on your botany in an attractive Art Nouveau structure at Cosmovitral Jardin Botanico. Erected in 1910, the building housed a popular market until 1975. The spacious glass and concrete structure was converted into a botanical garden in 1980, and features colorful art by Leopoldo Flores. View over 500 local and international plant species, and marvel at the large stained glass windows and murals. Look for the "Sun Man" glass mural, a symbol of Toluca: depicting a man in harmony with nature, it aligns with the sun on the spring equinox.

  • Absolutely incredible. Probably one of the most beautiful places in the world. For wheelchairs, it very accessible. I don't believe you needed to climb up any steps to get in and the entire interior has wonderful flat paths. An easy drive from Mexico City.
  • A wonderful botanical garden, harboured inside a glass covering designed by Leopoldo Flores in the early 20th century. It has wonderful plants, clear alleyways, well maintained glasses. If you're looking for nature and modern art together, this is the place to visit, in Toluca. Most of the plants, as told in local fore are native to Mexico. Quite a few even compare the beauty of the stained glass with the beauty of the plants within.
