Serra dei Giardini - The Greenhouse

Viale Giuseppe Garibaldi, 1254
122 Venezia VE

Located in the Castello area in Venice, the Greenhouse is just a few minutes from the Biennale Giardini. Historically known as Serra Margherita (Margherita Greenhouse), the Greeenhouse at Giardini in Castello was built in 1894 with the intention to create a "tepidarium made of glass and iron" to host the palm trees and other decorative plants in use at the coeval International Art Exhibition.

Thanks to an accurate restoration, the Municipality of Venice brought back the ancient beauty of the Greenhouse in the aim of maintaining its original use, as well as to ensure its public access through botanical and naturalistic activities that involve both local community and institutional bodies, promoting at the same time culture, learning and encounters.

Serra dei Giardini is a meeting place, a pleasant setting where you can relax and read books and magazines on gardening and nature, a permanent display of unusual plant species, an educational space for schools, adults and families, and a cultural centre.
