The Buenos Aires Botanical Garden, officially known as Jardín Botánico Carlos Thays, is an oasis for families and offers travelers a chance to pause. Conceived by the French-born Argentine architect and landscaper Carlos Thays in 1898, this garden of exotic plants is more than 7 hectares of green and is home to near 5,500 species of plants, trees and shrubs. The Buenos Aires Botanical Garden boasts three distinct landscape styles - Roman, French and Japanese - and five winter gardens. It houses a Botanic Library and Botanical Museum. The botanical garden was declared a historical monument in 1996 and received accolades at the Paris Expo in 1899.
