If you plan to visit this mediterranean Spanish city, you can’t miss this beautiful green and peaceful place in its historic center, just near the ancient Turia river.

Depending on the University of Valencia, maybe the most ancient in Europe, It was founded in 1557 as a medicinal plants’ garden.
From 1829 to 1863 scientific techniques improved and it was possible creating greenhouses to make climatization possible.

Its collections contain many species and specimens, including palms, among the largest in Europe, five greenhouses (the tropical plants ones and the four 19th century greenhouses that contain ferns collections, Orchids, bromeliads and insectivorous plants), the shadow, aquatic plants, fat plants, the aquarium and an aviary.

Greenhouse
Inside you can contemplate a greenhouse built at the end of the 19th century and an elegant vine-trellis in wrought iron of the 1900s, both recently restored.
From 1987 the Botanical Garden has taken back the function of study and scientific investigation, besides of being an university study.
