Unique species at Monaco’s botanical garden

Unique species at Monaco’s botanical garden

By Stephanie Horsman - May 21, 2019

Last Saturday’s European Night at the Museums allowed public access to the Exotic Garden’s botanical centre, which is providing two new, free tours.


The new premises, opened in late 2017 and located next to the Exotic Garden, boasts an impressive 10,500 plants. Set over three levels, the centre has seven full time gardeners, 900m2 of greenhouse space and 1,000m2 of shelter. 

The objective of the centre is to protect and conserve the rare or endangered species of plants they house, as well as to proliferate their growth. Around 85% of the species found here are protected.

The botanical centre also intends to be a database and study hub for those interested in botany and the biodiversity of plant life from different places around the world.
