Why locals love it

These seven greenhouses are used to grow and foster one of the biggest and most diverse collection of succulents of the world. Since those plants are from the desert, they store water and they like it hot. A perfect place to warm up after a winter stroll.

Why you should visit it

Most of the succulent plants contradict your expectations of greens. They've got funny leaves, grow in weird directions and, well they're just awesome overall. Cacti, agaves, aloe, you name it, they've got it. One of the plants even grows around one greenhouse, some 30 metres long. Oh and it's free.

Special tip

The collection also sells small plants to take home. Now that's a special souvenir!
