Description

The garden of L’Albarda is a model of excellence in the world of Mediterranean gardens. Created in 1990, it demonstrates the great richness of the flora that thrive in this climate. L’Albarda covers an area of 50,000 m2 and boasts more than 700 species of native plants, as well as an extensive collection of roses and palm trees.

In addition to its botanical biodiversity, L’Albarda has a formal garden, orchards and wild gardens.
