Botanical Garden of the Desert

The Botanical Garden of the Desert is a project developed by the Institute of the Desert (INDES), belonging to the University of Antofagasta, which was established to contribute to the study of renewable resources in the Atacama Desert.

Here, we can find a nursery of different species which they have gathered from the fields, and another with a cacti collection of species from the north of Chile.
