On the right hand side of the N-550 that goes from A Coruna to Tui, on Avenida de Compostela de Padrón, we find the Botanical Garden , which has been considered as an artistic national monument since 1946. This garden invites conversation and the desire to go for a stroll.
In this corner full of magic, true natural gems are hiding and waiting to be discovered. These are the same that were enjoyed by our most beloved and popular writer, Rosalia de Castro, where she wrote numerous verses under the shade of a sequoia that bears her name.
A Space that is considered as one of the oldest gardens in Spain, it is part of the Artistic Heritage, obtaining a major role of the abundance of the leisure and recreational life found in the Lands of Iria.
It has strong links with the Apostle James, Rosalia de Castro and Camilo Jose Cela, with examples devoted to these figures within or to those who have had a direct relationship with them.
A little more than one acre, the Botanical Garden contains an extraordinary floral display with 300 species and several of the 9 elements that make up the monumental tree catalog of Finisterrae.
We invite all visitors to get lost in this labyrinthine paradise, enjoying one of the most important botanical jewels in these Jacobean lands.
