Botanical Garden

Patrimoine culturel,


Famous in particular for its superb view over the Mont Saint-Michel Bay, the Avranches botanical garden is visited every year by nearly 250 000 tourists. A site for practical lessons created in 1766 by the Department's Ecole Centrale, it became a true garden in 1799. Plants have been added regularly by botanists over the years. Closed for work in 2006, it was opened again to the public in 2007.
