You will get the opportunity to follow the paths in these amazing surroundings and relish every moment you spend in nature. Of course, you are strongly advised not to overestimate your powers and rest from time to time.

The park is an oasis of refreshment and serenity, offering a shelter of peace and a pleasant breeze under the burning sun.

Just to name a few of the major attractions of the Botanical Park and Gardens, you will enjoy the vineyards and the cherry trees, herbs and other fruit trees, the citrus garden and many other plants and flowers. As for the animals, you can indulge in the observation of wild birds and astonishing butterflies, farm animals and even amphibians. The artificial lake that has been created as a source of revitalization is home to various other amphibians and is the centre of attention for a lot of animals.

For the ultimate culinary temptations coming straight from the park, there is a restaurant that you should not miss out on visiting for a light snack. Get to enjoy fresh and organically grown vegetables and fruits, with the addition of precious herbs and other distinctive ingredients and flavours of the Mediterranean cuisine.
