This huge botanical complex occupies a disused kaolin quarry (15ha, 60m deep). The plants here come from a temperate climate similar to that of Northern Europe. Two enormous spherical greenhouses (biomes) recreate the Mediterranean climate and the tropical rainforest. The technical feat is clear, but the admission price and commercial side mar the enjoyment somewhat.
