Capo Mortola è un toponimo dato ad un promontorio roccioso con una superficie di 18 ettari , una volta coperto principalmente di ulivi , viti e agrumeti . È situato sul mare , a pochi chilometri dalla Francia , nel comune ligure di Ventimiglia , in provincia di Imperia . Questo toponimo deriverebbe della presenza arcaica del mirto su questo capo , attraversato dall'antica strada via Julia Augusta . Dal 1867 il capo ospita i Giardini botanici Hanbury , dove sono acclimatate migliaia di piante provenienti da ogni parte del mondo . Il parco della villa rappresenta uno degli orti botanici più famosi d' Europa e del bacino del Mediterraneo . I giardini furono realizzati a partire dal 1867 grazie alla passione del viaggiatore inglese sir Thomas Hanbury che , dopo aver fatto fortuna come esportatore di tè a Shanghai , decise di stabilirsi sulla costa ligure ed acquistò dapprima il palazzo dei marchesi Orengo di Ventimiglia e successivamente i terreni circostanti su cui volle realizzare un giardino con specie botaniche raccolte in ogni parte del mondo . Alla sua morte avvenuta nel 1907 il figlio Cecil e la nuora Lady Dorothy portarono avanti l'opera di sir Thomas . Nel 1960 lo stato italiano acquistò dagli eredi il complesso la cui gestione nel 1987 venne affidata all'Università degli Studi di Genova . I giardini , oltre a conservare una notevole collezione botanica , sono ingentiliti da fontane , statue ed altri elementi architettonici . Una delle fontane più famose è la fontana del Drago che prende il nome dalla presenza al suo centro di un bronzo giapponese che Sir Tomas Hanbury acquistò da un antiquario a Kyoto nel 1893 ; la fontana è antistante una nicchia che ospita una statua di schiava di scuola canoviana . Fra gli elementi architettonici più importanti c'è il Mausoleo Moresco in cui sono tumulate le ceneri di Sir Thomas Hanbury e della moglie e il Tempietto Quattro Stagioni in cui sono tumulate le ceneri di Lady Dorothy . La zona botanica continua anche nei fondali con un ambiente marino tra i più interessanti della Liguria dove è stata localizzata da tempo una sorgente di acqua dolce . Sulla destra della foto l' abitato di La Mortola ( Mortola Inferiore ) e , dietro la punta , Cap Martin e i grattacieli di Monte Carlo sovrastati dalla Tete de Chien #Panoramiche #Mare #Acqua #Water

Bravo Silvio, all excellent: photo, caption and place (I know him, but not so well and the distance induces some desire..)
