Nice small garden just down some steps from the Greek:Roman Theatre. There is an interesting notice board with the history of how the garden came into bring. Well worth reading.

This is a huge park area on the edge of the town. Gorgeous planting and trees. Lots of places to sit quietly and relax. There are old buildings that give fabulous photo opportunities. There is a lovely play area if you have children to entertain.

Great views of the sea. Nice area to walk or sit and see the variety of flowers and trees. Not that easy to find, but people were helpful at directing us. Glad we stopped to see this.

Beautiful gardens with plenty of shades to hide away from the sun. A lot of vistas here so you will easily take a plenty of shots (if you're into that). Also there are some historical military monuments in here
