The freshness of the Garden has a lot to do with the great presence of water.
Gijón It is a city where you eat, drink and enjoy as the gods of Olympus would have done if they had existed. All seasoned with a lot of history - the Roman baths and the Labor one for example - and a natural beauty of which the beautiful is part Gijón Botanical Garden.
I arrived at Oviedo airport at 8 in the morning and Belén took me to the hotel Santa Rosa, located in the center of the city. There I had the right time to have breakfast, leave things and greet the rest of the members of the group. At 10 in the morning I was at the top of the Gijón tourist bus.
Beautiful color in every corner of the Garden.
After a brief walk through the center, half a group stopped at the Botanical Garden of Gijón while the rest continued on their way to La Laboral.
The Botanical Garden is unique in its kind. It is organized into four large areas: the Cantabrian Environment, the Garden of the Island, the Plant Factory and the Atlantic Itinerary.
Each of these areas is dedicated to a different type of plants and so we can contemplate the oaks and beech typical of the Cantabrian; camellias and bonsai that decorate the Garden; sniff the Quintana and feel the freshness of the firs and willows of the Atlantic.
A light rain caused us to put on our red raincoats before getting on the segways where we would visit the Botanist. I had seen them before but for those who, like me, is the first time they hear the name of these pots I will explain a little what it is.
We dominated the segway as great rally drivers after half an hour.
