Botanical Garden (Orto Botanico), Padua

If I'm not mistaken the only botanical garden I've visited was in Coimbra, Portugal, and it is very beautiful. This one in Padua, the oldest of the world, looks even prettier

The world's first university botanical garden was created in Padua in 1545, which makes the Botanical Garden of Padua the oldest surviving example of this type of cultural property. Botanical gardens have played a vital role throughout history in the communication and exchange not only of ideas and concepts but also of plants and knowledge. The Botanical Garden of Padua is the original of botanical gardens in Europe, and represents the birth of botanical science, of scientific exchanges, and understanding of the relationship between nature and culture. - in:
