Conservatory and Botanical Garden of Geneva

Interesting
This 70-acre pleasure garden, home to over 16,000 species of plants, has much to teach us about plant life. It includes a rock garden in which the plants are laid out in geographical groups, an arboretum, greenhouses, a winter garden containing tropical and equatorial vegetation and an animal park, etc. The Conservatory is the setting of a science library and one of the world's largest herbariums.
