The Exotic Gardens and the Observation Cave

The Exotic Gardens and the Observation Cave

This «extraordinary garden», bringing together several million species of plants known as «succulents», was opened in 1933 and was boldly planted on the rocky mountainside where it blooms superbly; it has today become the object of worldwide admiration. It is the kingdom of nature’s exuberance, its unusualness and surrealism.
60m below ground, a prehistoric cave reveals its spectacular stalagmites and stalactites formed over millennia!
