The Winter Greenhouse

This greenhouse, built in 1911, is the oldest in the Botanical Garden and one of the last remaining examples of a particularly refined architecture.

Its central dome provides a space free from supports which allows for the growth of the palms. Since its restoration in 1998, its tropical nature has been enriched by a display of useful plants which, in the case of the spice plants from the equatorial zone, need a warm and humid climate (80% humidity and 68°F/20°C minimum in winter). At the entrance a small reception area allows you to settle in so that you can get used to the contrast of temperature and humidity. At your disposal also in this area is a file to consult, which gives information on the cultivated and useful plants that you will discover within. This area, as well as the little terrace in the middle of the greenhouse, offers you a place to rest, especially in the middle of winter when the dullness of a garden with frozen ponds is replaced by the exuberance of the jungle.
