Description:

the Botanical Garden, created in 1768 with scientific aims by G.B. Guatteri, was later directed by famous scientists who transformed it into an experimental, ecological landscape garden.

Based on a design by Petitot, but finished only in the year 1793, it now boasts centuries old trees and exotic plants in greenhouses.

The garden also plays host to wonderful examples of botanical species, for instance the Ginkgo biloba planted in 1795 and a remarkable collection of Erbario togheter with an important scientific library.
