The modern incarnation of an early medicinal garden cultivated for physicians, Hortus Botanicus has been in existence at this location since 1682. Seafaring traders brought from their journeys exotic plants, which found their way to the garden and were the beginnings of a collection that now numbers 8000+ species. Visitors will find both outside and within specially-built greenhouses rare palms and plants representing tropical, sub-tropical and desert environments. Abundant flowers, water features, mature trees, and plantings for herbs and roses also fill the garden's pastoral acreage. Be sure to step inside the small greenhouse full of live butterflies.
