Did you know that in 1937, Cuba, then a little-known jewel in the Caribbean, sparked a real botanical passion in Brother Marie-Victorin, founder of the Jardin botanique de Montréal?

The virtual exhibition “Under the Cuban Sun with Marie-Victorin,” taken from the exhibition of the same name presented at the Jardin botanique from 2008 to 2011, tells the story of Brother Marie-Victorin’s seven trips to Cuba between 1938 and 1944 in words, photos and videos.

Through the provinces he visited, you too too are sure to fall under the country's charms as you discover the fabulous beauty and tremendous biodiversity of the Cuba that was so eloquently described by Marie-Victorin.
