The Botanical Garden of Valencia is The perfect place to find yourself
Do you know the botanical garden? And his Museum? The truth is that this is one of those places that go unnoticed by the conventional tourist, plus it does not appear in conventional guidebooks.
In the Calle Quart, 80, very close to the Torres de Quart (also must visit)there is a wonderful garden that will transport you very far away. The Botanic Garden was founded in 1567 for the study of medicinal plants: in fact it host an important collection with about three thousand species of trees and plants, specially the palm and the cactus.
But this is not just a place to admire nature. If you like live jazz concerts, ask for the cultural program when you visit this garden. Seek a little personal space in this bustling city and enjoy your unconventional holiday in Valencia.
