The botanical garden in Brera
A miracle of greenery amid the buildings of Milan
The botanical garden in Brera is a miracle of greenery amid the buildings of Milan, with 300 different species and five thousand square metres! It dates from the end of the 18th century and it has a very special atmosphere.
For anyone wanting to learn more about art through botany, there is an interesting little learning-through-play booklet: “Arte e Orto” (Art and Garden) It incorporates everything there is in Brera’s picture gallery!
