The Artistic Path

Along this path the works of several different artists are on display.

The path joins the sculptures of several contemporary artists that have been placed here and there in the Park; periodically other sculptures are added. The path is attractive in any season whatsoever!

By visiting the park you’ll be overwhelmed by the unique natural and decorative characteristics of the surrounding environment, including the grassy meadows at the Park’s summit. With its 62.000 sq. meters, the park has the largest and most varied collection of azaleas, rhododendrons and conifers of the entire Insubric Region.
