How about travelling back in time? We offer you to go and discover a lovely park in Paris Latin Quarter. Here is the Musée de Cluny’s Medieval Garden.

Calling all history buffs and curious people looking for new discoveries, note there is, in the Latin Quarter, a very special green place offering you to travel back in time. Just by the Musée de Cluny – the museum dedicated to the Middle-Ages – there is a medieval garden awaiting. Charming place for a walk, the Jardin de Cluny provides us with a great spot for a delightful break in the heart of Paris, but not only.

Even though this park is quite modern, it was inspired by Middle-Age gardens, matching the buildings around. The most curious of you can found out more about the botanic feature of this verdant location. There is even a vegetable garden featuring species of plants and vegetables that used to be eaten in medieval Paris. Another garden – called the Jardin des médecines simples or medicinal herb garden – unveils the herbs that were used to make remedies at that time.

You can also find many spaces, terraces and flowerbeds representing different faces of medieval Paris. The Jardin Céleste unveils flowers depicting the Virgin including rose, lily, violet and iris; while the Jardin de l’Amour Courtois sets another romantic setting. You can even find plants that are featured on the famous “The Lady and the Unicorn” tapestry kept at the Musée de Cluny.
