In a nutshell
A vast, lush crater filled with two million plants, dominated by two shining biomes. The path leading to the entrance gives no clue as to the sight that awaits, then suddenly you are gazing at what looks like alien spaceships among acres of landscaped gardens. One biome houses the world’s largest indoor rainforest, the other 1,000 varieties of Mediterranean plants. Outside paths wind up and down terraces and past a giant bee and a 3.3 tonne Junkman sculpture. Sustainability is at its core, from various water and energy-saving devices to local and international community projects.
