It’s winter in the garden

My new year started with a visit to the stunning Botanic garden of the University of Valencia, Spain  (Universitat de València Jardi Botànic) situated at the Calle Quart 80. The garden has about 4500 species of trees and plants in 20 collections including a large variety of the palm and cactus. The Botanic garden was founded in 1567 originally for the study of the medicinal properties of herbs and moved to its present site at the ‘l’Hort de Tramoyeres’ in 1802.
