Camellia Park, Locarno

In search of this magnificent flower

The Camellia Park opened in March 2005 and has become an international attraction, both for its stunning landscapes and its rare botanical treasures. The numerous species that grow there ensure the gardens are in bloom for nine months of the year, reaching their pinnacle in March. The park is designed like a sort of maze, while an elegant pavilion houses a series of information boards.
