Botanic Garden and Herbarium


Botanic gardens and herbaria are museums of the vegetal world, which were founded to enable students to observe medicinal plants, and evolved according to the development of botanical science. Our Botanic Garden and Herbarium are among the oldest in Europe. Water lilies, succulent and carnivorous plants, a tropical greenhouse and much more: discover the vast botanical diversity of our planet. The endless array of colourful plants and flowers will stimulate all of your senses.
