This garden has a triple vocation: botanical, historical and university.
When it was founded in 1593 by Pierre Richer de Belleval, the Jardin des Plants of Montpellier was destined for the cultivation of the "simple", but Richer's project rapidly surpassed the only medicinal plants used for the teaching of future doctors and apothecaries To become a true botanical study tool, unpublished at the time.
