Title

Located within the Palermo neighbourhood's Parque Tres de Febrero, one of the most popular parks in the city, this pretty garden boasts a collection of more than 18,000 roses surrounded by a lake and acres of parkland.

The rose garden (rosedal in Spanish) is more than a century old and has received the international Garden Excellence Award from the World Federation of Rose Societies. As well as its roses, it features a lake with a Greek-influenced bridge, an amphitheatre, an Andalusian patio and a poets' garden with 26 busts of famous writers including Alfonsina Storni, Dante Alighieri, William Shakespeare and Jorge Luis Borges.

The land for this garden and the surrounding park belonged to the country house of Argentine president Juan Manuel de Rosas until he was defeated in the battle of Caseros on February 3 1852. The work to design the garden was begun by French landscaper Charles Thays and finished by his disciple Benito Carrasco in 1914.
