Orto botanico - The Botanical Garden in Palermo

Aloe plicatilis in the Botanical Garden (Orto botanico) in Palermo, a nice place to relax between visiting churches and museums in Palermo. The garden opened to the public in 1795. It has a lot of plants and trees from all over the world. In the lovely lily pond, there are lots of cute turtles.
