The Botanical Garden

The courtyard of the Tramariglio penal colony – which is today the headquarters of the Porto Conte Regional Nature Reserve and the Capo Caccia/Isola Piana Marine Protected Area – plays host to a large botanical garden and outdoor classroom, with a specific pathway designed for those with visual impairments.

The garden, which is used not only for environmental education activities but also as a waiting area and entry point to the various museum pavilions, periodically provides the stage for cultural events and initiatives that are geared towards the promotion and enhancement of the protected areas and the outstanding features of the surrounding territory.

The botanical garden meanders its way round a route composed of six teaching stations featuring six panels that describe the Porto Conte Regional Nature Reserve’s main organic landscapes, focusing in particular on the endemic and autochthonous flora.

The panels are located in front of “organic islands” composed of shrubs and plants that are typical of the Mediterranean landscape. Visitors to the garden are taken on a journey to discover the colours, shapes and aromas of the vegetation of Porto Conte, serving as the first step towards the environmental excursions that enable participants to get up-close and personal with the flora of the nature reserve, as well as being an excellent opportunity for those who, for whatever reason, cannot physically get to know the local area.
