This historic garden has been recently supplemented by the Jardin botanique de la Bastide, located across the river. Although the garden’s origins extend back to 1629 AD, with the creation of Bordeaux’s first medicinal garden, today’s botanical garden dates to 1858. It currently contains more than 3000 plant species, both those indigenous to Aquitaine and exotic plants from North America, China and Japan. It is organized as a systematic collection.
