The importance of plants
This museum has a major collection of paleobotanical fossils representing all the geological ages.
Created in 1980, the Museum of Ethnobotany and the Cordoba Botanical Gardens have in their collection a broad representation of Spanish flora, and in particular, the flora of Andalusia. This is a unique setting where you can see how plants have been used traditionally and their benefits for mankind. The plant collections are distributed over various areas: these include an Arboretum, with trees and shrubs from all over the world; a Rose Garden; the School of Botany; the Touch and Smell Garden; the Exhibition Greenhouses, with numerous endemic plants from the Canary Islands; the Ethnobotanical Museum and the Paleobotanical Museum.
