The name "Botanical Garden", which has been an official name since 2008, has been preserved and spread in the public consciousness thanks to this novel.

9. Franciscan church

The remaining ruins of the monastery are the Gothic church façade, the remains of one of the side walls, the monastery cemetery and the cemetery chapel. The preservation of the ruins was helped by the fact that most of the ruins of the monastery were incorporated into the Palatine villa built in 1796, which was later converted into the Palatine Hotel. The remains of the hostel were demolished after 1945. As a result of the smaller archaeological excavations initiated at this time, some new, unexplored details of the monastery were revealed.
