The Rosedal (in English the Roses Garden) is the most famous park in Palermo. This masterpiece of garden design gathers a great collection of different roses with diverse colors and forms. But not everything is about flowers: the Rosedal has beautiful galleries, brigdes, lakes and statues that ornate it. This place is so romantic that you’ll even find little ducks swimming in the water ponds. Best time to visit is November when the jacaranda trees are purple and all the roses unfold their colors in a superb showcase of nature.
- A quick visit to the Planetarium: While this is not a park, if you visit the Rosedal it is good to cross the street to the green area next door to see the Plantearium. A weird building that looks like a space ship. This famous landmark of Palermo is admired for its creative architecture.
The Japanese Gardens
