Conservatoire et Jardin botaniques de la Ville de Genève
The large glass dome, near to the Route de Lausanne, is called the Temperate House and contains Mediterranean type vegetation from Australia, South Africa, the subtropical regions of Asia and America, as well as from the Mediterranean region itself.
A special space is dedicated to the cacti and succulents, with two landscapes (American and African) facing each other.
In the winter season, this greenhouse also houses some of our oldest and most remarkable trees, grown in frost-resistant pots, such as the centuries-old Podocarpus.
