Ok like any gardens but the best are the glass art. Amazing and worth seeing. It looks really colorful especially the sun man representation.

A botanical garden which happens to have almost half an acre of impressive stained glass windows, the combination should be delightful for art lovers and plant lovers alike. Don't come here in a hurry, and you will have an extremely relaxing hour of taking in in all the plant species, made even more beautiful by the light seeping through the... More

This place is not well publicised, and indeed the helpful tourist information office is not so easy to find but seek it out. Near the cathedral / city hall in the old centre of town. Small entry fee ( closed Monday) Amazing stained glass, huge panels in a former market hall. Well kept minimalistic garden inside, tastefully done but the... More

If you love art Nouveau, don’t miss “Cosmovitral” at downtown in Toluca city.

At Cosmovitral you will find reppresented duality between: man/woman - Angels/demons... More

This Botanical garden is within walking distance from downtown and offers a wide range of flowers, cactus and trees. The glass paintings at the entrance is very beautiful. there is a nominal entrance fee for this attraction. Not very big, but worth a visit

My wife and I had a stop at Cosmovitral on the way to the Piedra Herradura Monarch Butterfly Reserve last February. I'm glad this stop was included; I would most likely not have made the trip to Toluca just to see the Cosmovitral. That being said, it was well worth the time we spent there. The tour we had was...

Toluca is an industrial city, not much to see there. Most attractions are day trips outside of the city. Aside from the cathedral and some other churches, this is a nice place to spend some time visiting. It is a botanical garden, so expect to see vegetation in a greenhouse environment. The place is a large space featuring a fountain... More

It used to be the marketplace but the building has been converted into an indoor botanical garden. When you walk in you're surrounded by stained glass windows and beautiful plants. The stained glass is along every wall and on the ceiling from the front to the back. There is a guide that gives an excellent, free, explanation of the glass... More
