The Atlantic Botanical Garden is one of the most beautiful and striking places in the city of Gijón. Inaugurated in 2003, it is a plant museum where visitors can learn about and enjoy the vegetation of the northern peninsular. It stands out for being the first botanical garden in northern Spain and for attracting thousands of tourists a year.
Although it was inaugurated in 2003, the Atlantic botanical garden is made up of several areas that have been part of Gijón for thousands of years. Its current structure has new elements, but also includes the Aliseda del río Peñafrancia and La Carbayera de El Tragamón, two natural forests that have survived the urban expansion of Gijón.
While museums change their exhibitions from time to time, the Atlantic botanical garden is in constant variation. With the arrival of each season this natural museum shows us nature in different versions, being able to appreciate all its richness and changes of tone. This can be seen in any of the different areas that make up this botanical garden, which are related to the Atlantic Ocean.
If you are thinking of traveling soon to Gijón, the Atlantic botanical garden is one of the places you must visit. This nature museum is open all year round and can be enjoyed both to disconnect and to learn more about the nature that surrounds us. More and more pilgrims also take a break to enjoy this museum, and take a break from the Camino del Norte to visit it.
