Pallanca exotic garden one of the most important in Europe and one of the first five gardens in the world for suculents. The oldest plant is the 300 years old "Copiapoa" (which usually grows in the Andes in Chile). Even if you’re not a big fan of cactae, this garden is really a must see !
Pallanca exotic garden is a private garden, founded in 1910 by the Pallanca family, containing over 3000 species, planted on slopping terrain. The garden is divided into a number of zones representing the country or region of origin of the plants.
The mild climate of western Liguria is perfect for these plants, with long and hot summers and mild winters.
So, go there, take your lomo cameras, shoot the different shapes, and have fun !
You can even buy small potted cacti, if you like them !
