On the outskirts of Victoria, located in Mont Fleuri, lies the Oldest National Monuments of Seychelles – the Botanical Garden. Form its conception almost a century ago; it holds within its realms a large and varied collection of mellowed, bizarre and endemic plants within five acres of beautifully maintained landscaped gardens.
