Botanic Park Betty Molesworth
Betty Molesworth was born in New Zealand in 1913. She was a remarkable woman and overcame serious illness to become an eminent Botanist gaining worldwide recognition for discovering a unique and ancient fern growing between rocks in Alcornocales National Park.
In recognition of her great contributions to the environment, locally she was made an adopted daughter of the town of Los Barrios in 1988 and a botanical park was named in her honour.
The botanical gardens really are a sight to see, with tropical flowers engulfing the grounds and come rare and endangered species.
