Perfumes, Colors, and Sounds

The naturalistic passion of an English family has created, since 1867 near Ventimiglia, a botanic garden for the acclimatization of plants coming from different areas of the world, by exploiting the favorable position of the area and the particular mildness of the climate: Hanbury Botanic Gardens. The collaboration of mainly foreign botanists, agronomists, and landscape architects led to the creation of a unique complex in Europe, both from a botanical point of view, with the 5,800 species of ornamental, medicinal, and fruit species, and from a landscape point of view, thanks to the great composition harmony existing among buildings, ornamental elements, and cultivated terracing.
