THE BOTANICAL GARDEN
Over the centuries, the Garden of Padua has placed itself in the middle of a widespread network of international relations, by exerting a deep influence upon the research and holding a leading role in the exchange of ideas, knowledge, plants and scientific material. On the basis of such considerations, in 1997 it has been inscribed in the World Heritage List as a cultural good.
