Botanical garden Gardone Riviera

Botanical garden

The beautiful Botanical Garden of the Heller Foundation

Spread across 10.000 mq, on the side of Lavino mount, the Garden offers a collection of more than 2.000 plants from all over the world.
(Among the others, you will find the majestic fronds of the Osmunda Regalis, various bamboo species and azaleas)

This paradise was developed by the famous medic and naturalist Arthur Hruska between 1910 and 1971 with artificial lakes and streams full of fishes.

In 1988 the multimedia artist André Heller acquired this field with the adjoining mansion in order to create a centre of ecological conscience.
The Garden features contemporary sculptures and artworks by artists from all over the world.
