Valencia Botanical Garden

See a selection of plant species from five continents and admire grand 19th-century greenhouse architecture in Valencia’s premier gardens.

Learn about the diversity of plants via a collection of more than 4,000 plant species from five continents at the Valencia Botanical Garden. Founded in 1567 for the study of medicinal plants, the garden moved to its current location in 1802. The garden is part of the University of Valencia. 

Follow a series of pathways to see the plants, which are arranged in 20 collections and grow in both indoor and outdoor areas. The palms collection includes over 120 species of palm tree; some are more than 200 years old. Look for the date palm that is famous for its 35 arms. Find a plant collection dedicated to Valencia’s most significant ecosystems and a rockery of native Mediterranean plants. 

Stroll around the garden’s woodland area to discover some of the world’s most important trees, including the Illinois walnut and American oak. In this area you’ll find benches where you can sit and enjoy the natural surroundings of the garden.

In addition to enjoying the plants, architecture enthusiasts will appreciate the garden’s 19th-century greenhouses, characterized by prominent ironwork and brickwork. The most impressive is the Tropical Greenhouse, which stands in the middle of the garden. Its arched frame includes over 5,000 pieces of glass. 

Come to the garden for a range of cultural events, such as art and photography exhibitions, live jazz and classical music performances. You can also take part in botany courses. Find a schedule of events and prices on the garden’s official website.

The garden is just a short walk from Valencia’s Old Town. Public buses and the metro stop close to the main entrance. If you arrive by car, there are pay-and-display parking spaces on the streets surrounding the garden.

Valencia Botanical Garden is open daily, except for select public holidays. Visit the garden’s official website for detailed opening times and information about days with free admission. For an extra fee take a one-hour guided tour in English. Alternatively, rent an audio guide and take a self-guided tour of the collections.
