Visit one of the most outstanding conservation gardens on the Balearic Islands with this Ibiza Biotechnological Botanical Garden Tour. Discover all the unique species it houses.

Ibiza Biotechnological Botanical Garden Tour

The IBB is the Ibiza Biotechnological Botanical, a garden dedicated to the conservation of vegetation and the promotion of research. It's currently home to more than 12,000 plants of 120 different species - a botanical paradise!

The guided tour will start in front of the photobioreactor that allows the growth of microalgae. It's a sophisticated device with 200 metres of transparent tubes and a volume of 1200 litres of water. The microalgae, which are used as fertilizer, consume carbon dioxide at a voracious rate. Did you know that this great "appetite" contributes to the cleaning of the atmosphere?

The tour will continue by observing some endemic and some already extinct species. Yes, there are still some specimens in the garden that do not grow anywhere else! We'll also view a replica of a typical Mediterranean salt cellar built, among other materials, with stakes more than 100 years old.

The next stop will be the IBB's atmospheric water generators. You can sample its pure and crystalline water, which hasn't been treated with chemicals such as chlorine or fluorine, nor has it been exposed to toxins, bacteria, viruses or parasites.

We'll follow the route next to the beehives and the lake. Finally, we'll see the centre's extensive collection of bonsai. The tour will last between 30 and 45 minutes.
