(Local Name: Jardin Borda) The Jardin Borda (Borda Garden), diagonally opposite the cathedral, was laid out in the second half of the 18th c. - by Jose de la Borda, the so-called "Solver King" from the mining town of Taxco. The park, restored most recently in 1987, contains terraced gardens, ponds, and an open-air theater. During their brief reign (1864-67) it was used by the Emperor Maximillian and his wife Charlotte for garden parties. The Casa de Maximiliano (restored 1960) in the Calle Galena was the imperial couple's summer residence.
