Jardín Botánico de la Universidad de València
Over three thousands species of trees populate Jardín Botánico de València, a botanic garden dating back to the 16th century which has grown exponentially over the years while creating the perfect environment for the plants that call it home.
Jardín Botánico de la Universitat de València is thought to have originally been used to cultivate medicinal plants for the Faculty of Medicine. By 1778, however, its very own area of research had been established.
Nowadays, Jardín Botánico is an enchanting botanic garden where you can poke your head into tropical glasshouses, marvel at collections of carnivorous plants and gaze at water lilies soaking up the sun. Beyond this, the garden runs a wide range of events and activities designed to offer locals and visitors an opportunity to enjoy some culture.
València’s botanic garden is situated close to the bed of the river Turia, which is now a spectacular park, and the historic centre of the city. Torres de Quart is also just steps away, reminding you that València was once a walled city, and providing you access to El Carmen district, whose streets will lead you to the cathedral and Miguelete.
Jardín Botánico de València is a little oasis of tranquillity in the heart of the city where you can enjoy a gentle stroll among the plants and visit exhibitions about the world of plants and the research being undertaken at Universitat de València. Don’t miss it.
