Baluarte de Santiago & Jardín Botánico Xmuch Haltún

Gardens in Campeche

Completed in 1704 – the last of the bulwarks to be built – the Baluarte de Santiago houses the Jardín Botánico Xmuch Haltún, a botanical garden with numerous endemic and some introduced plants. It's not a huge place, but provides a green and peaceful respite when the sun gets particularly brutal.
