The entire park with its 62'000 square metres, hosts the largest and most varied collection of azaleas, rhododendrons and conifers in the whole Insubric Region. During the months of April and May the azaleas and rhododendrons form a highly coloured and perfumed carpet. 16.05.2015 © 2015 Didier Ruef
