In these gardens there are more than 500 trees and shrubs, and almost a hundred of species. There are several botanical treasures such as the collection of pinsapo firs, native species (e.g., there are two stone pines and several olive trees) which live next to alien species (e.g., the beatiful crape myrtle, from China, and the «baby» giant sequoia, from the New World), and man-made hybrids such as Forsythia x intermedia, which turns bright yellow at the start of spring.
You can also find examples of plants with a variety of reproductive systems (hermaphrodite, monoecious or dioecious species), defence mechanisms (toxins, alkaloids, hairs, spines, etc.) and uses (food, medicine, timber, etc.).
In your visit to this small botanical garden, you will be guided by a careful selection of informative texts, high quality photographs and a location map.
