Greenhouses of the world: Nice, France, “The Green Diamond”

Having a stopover in the third busiest airport in France, Nice Côte d’Azur Airport? Or spending your vacation on French Riviera? Plan a couple of hours before or  between your flights to visit Parc Phoenix.

From the distance you might think that a huge UFO has attempted to land in the airport, missed just a few hundred meters and got into a beautiful parc nearby. The UFO is called The Green Diamond and is a huge greenhouse with 6 different tropical bioms inside.

Bild in 1990, with 7 000 m2 and 25m high it houses a huge collection of both rare and typical tropical plants. It is even complete with a pond with a flock of live flamingo.
