Trip Planner: Africa / Reunion Island / Arrondissement of Saint-Pierre / Saint-Philippe / Jardin des Parfums et des Epices
A feast for the senses, Jardin des Parfums et des Epices invites you to explore the island's endemic plant species. This private garden--sitting on an 800-year-old volcanic flow and boasting over 1,500 species--opened its gates to the public in 1989. Take a guided tour for insight into the historical and scientific aspects of the area and its aromatics, spices, medicinal plants, and centuries-old trees. The scents will linger with you long after you've finished the tour, especially if you take a part of the garden home: the gift shop sells a variety of essential oils and jams. Plan your Jardin des Parfums et des Epices visit and explore what else you can see and do in Saint-Philippe using our Saint-Philippe driving holiday planner.

Diversity of species and the quality of Mathieu's comments our guide make time pass too quickly and absolutely gives the desire to come back. A visit full of smells, flavors and images for young and old.
In case you like plants and esp. Flowers... go there. Better you speak French. As you need to understand . The guided tour is said to be great.... But only French. Still enjoy the place
That place was INTERESTING!! A very good guide who knew his subject and gave our tour a really informative guided tour. It's not difficult getting around. Even the elderly can enjoy it. Warning! It's extremely humid and we were welcomed by the mosquitoes, so take (AND APPLY) mosquito repellent. We saw amazing jungly flowers and I still see pictures in my mind of the bird's nest Fern's.
