There are four greenhouses that make up the Tropical Greenhouses.
In the Main Tropical Greenhouse, the visitor can admire a range of species especially adapted to high temperature and humidity conditions, similar to rainforests, such as orchids, ferns and giant water lilies.
The 3 other greenhouses in the Est part are organised in parallel tunnels, lying one next to the other: the Volcanic Greenhouse which reproduces the Canaries Islands volcanic landscape with particular drought-resistant plants, the Bromeliaceae Greenhouse showcasing species related to the pineapple family and finally the Gesneriaceae Greenhouse displaying plants from tropical mountain areas.
The visitor can also see additional adjacent greenhouses, which are closed to the public, but can be visited upon request. These greenhouses are used as a collection and working space to bread highly endangered species.
