The secret of the botanical garden
Not much far from here there is a place in which plants are collected, cataloged, preserved and studied.
It’s Valmadrera’s botanical garden!
The “Garden of medicinal plants, herbs and wild flowers” has been established in 1986 at Fatebenefratelli cultural center, in the same space used by monks who lived here centuries ago. The climatic and environmental conditions of the area favored a rich and varied presence of medicinal and aromatic plants, as well as interesting and rare mountain flora.
The conventual imprint was kept in the subdivision of four large original squares, with the addition of internal paths for the observation of plants in respect of their habitat.
