Cacti Glasshouse Pallanca Exotic Garden Bordighera

Giacomo Pallanca left the olive oil trade in 1861 to work with the German botanist Ludwig Winter. His son Bartolomeo inherited his passion and in 1910 established the Pallanca Exotic Garden at Bordighera, a nursery for ornamental plants and flowers on the Ligurian coast just a few kilometres from the French border. Now specialising in cacti and succulents, the gardens have been open to the public since 1989.
