It was started by King Ferdinand in 1882. The ‘gardens’ are really just the glass houses, but they have about 6 small houses chock and block full of wonderful plants, all healthy and happy and named. There were a few that I did not recognize so was happy to wander around here for a bit. An excellent place to visit – they exchange with other botanic gardens and have amassed quite a wonderful collection from tropical through to succulents.
