The Naturospace Butterfly House, Tropical Garden at Honfleur (14) in Normandy : The air-conditioned indoor space offers on its 200 m long path an amazing voyage into a warm and humid equatoria biotope, where tropical butterflies fly in total freedom. Several varieties of very rare tropical birds are keeping them company: Victoria crowned pigeons, lories, crested wood partridges, fruit doves are joinded by Gouldian finches and Chinese blue-breasted quails.
The plant collection is a major element in this reconstitution of nature. It contains several hundreds of species, often rare ones, especially in the families of the Acanthaceae, Araceae, Heliconia, and Orchids. We pay special attention to floral diversity and to the presentation of tropical fruit and spice plants.
