Botanical Path

Some of the signposts give information on the ornamental and natural vegetation.

Fortyfive conifers and 19 plants are to be found along the way, and are labelled with their Latin, Italian and German names. A map indicates their country of origin. This walk is approximately 1.7 km long. The 62,00 square metre park, hosts the largest and most varied collection of azaleas, rhododendrons and conifers of the entire region. During the months of April and May the azaleas and rhododendrons form a wonderfully coloured and scented carpet. We do not wish to reveal all the secrets of the flora to be found in the park, it will be up to you to learn from the information signs placed along the botan cal paths, which lead you to a natural, more complete and quiet environment, wherethe botanical park meets the surrounding wooded areas.
