    These living collections are surrounded by a garden composed of trees and shrubs typical of the region. Arbutus trees, hackberry trees, olive trees, Italian scillies and corm trees share this space, scented with thyme and rosemary. The flowers are picked by the bees, which pass through a long transparent corridor allowing to see their activity.
