Intro

Located between Monte San Salvatore and Monte Arbostora at an altitude of just under 700 metres, the botanical gardens are a mecca for park visitors and plant lovers – particularly in April and May, when the azaleas and rhododendrons form a fragrant carpet.

The San Grato botanical gardens are situated above Lake Lugano on the hills of Carona and can be reached by car or bus from Lugano. Covering 62,000m2, the park hosts the largest and most diverse collection of azaleas, rhododendrons and conifers in the whole Insubrian region.

There are five themed trails through the park: the “Fairytale Trail” is fabulous in the truest sense of the word, giving children a chance to play as they explore the park. Another easy option is the “Relaxation Trail”. The “Botanical Trail” features a large number of information boards about the ornamental plants and wild vegetation in the park. Visitors who follow the “Art Trail” can see works by a selection of artists, while the “Panorama Trail” will take them to the park's various lookout points. This trail is also suitable for a picnic.
The “Parco botanico di San Grato” is open throughout the year and admission is free.
