Jardim Botânico da Universidade de Coimbra
The role of botanical gardens has undergone transformations over the centuries, and the Botanic Garden of the University of Coimbra is also an example of this. The creation of the Botanic Garden was rooted on the taxonomic collections used by the University for the study and documentation of plants, a fact that is decisive for the Garden’s scientific and historical value. Today it is recognized as a space open to all, and a privileged place to host projects from a variety of disciplines, such as environmental education, formal and informal education, research, social intervention and even cultural and artistic. This multidisciplinary approach is essential to strengthen the Botanic Garden’s connection to the community.
