Botanical Garden of Brest

Brest National Botanical Conservatory Garden
The Stang Alar valley is a 2 km green flow just a stone's throw from Place de Strasbourg, Oceanopolis and the Moulin Blanc Marina, a magical, unique place. The favorite walk
of the people of Brest. A place for you to come stroll, play with your family, picnic, read in the shade of eucalyptus trees, watch birds, or just sit and enjoy one of the most beautiful gardens in Brest while looking out over the harbor.

It is hard to believe that before becoming a remarkable listed garden and the first "Plant Samu", the Stang Alar was a dump and even then a quarry...
It took the stubbornness of botanist Jean Yves Lesoüef, aware that 20% of the 420 000 plant species listed on the planet were threatened with extinction, and the support of the Association Bretagne vivante (SEPNB) - Living Brittany Association for the place to become what he is now,
a renowned botanical conservatory.

It is your chance to stroll and escape to the humid forests of Madeira, Madagascar, Guyana or Mauritius where a small shrub with blue bells, Nesocodon mautitianus, comes from.
A critically endangered species in its natural environment. In question the Guava tree which colonizes the cliffs where it grows. Stories of beautiful or modest plants that the animators of the conservatory tell while showing visitors the tropical greenhouses.
This is where you come across the Arum Titan which gives one of the biggest flowers in the world, extremely rare hibiscus, carnivorous plants... A magical place where you can discover beautiful exhibitions.
And in addition all the visits, alone or guided, of the Tropical greenhouses which shelters the conservatory
