The Botanical Garden has been created in 1729 by King Vittorio Amedeo II, next to the Valentino's Castle. Since then, it functions as important source of studying and researching for the Turinese University. In 1830-40 "Il Boschetto" has been added, in order to include various species of esotic plants.
