Europe’s Largest Cactus Garden

When you think of most of Europe, you probably don’t think of cacti. The landscapes of European countries vary greatly, but dry, cactus-loving landscapes are more rare than in other parts of the world. Desert City, a gigantic cactus garden, is hoping to change that on the outskirts of Madrid. Designed by the Madrid-based Jacobo García-Germán architecture studio, visitors will be greeted by a huge array of cactus and other similar plantings, plus an enormous greenhouse with cacti for sale.  Built on a former industrial wasteland, Desert City has breathed new, and beautiful life into this part of Spain.  Via Wallpaper:
