A Beautiful Day in Parco Delle Camelie in Locarno, Switzerland

It was still a bit cold during our visit but we had a blue sky and  the sun was shining. It was indeed a perfect day visiting this park in Locarno.  The temperature  reached up to 15 degree Celsius that day. Our bus arrived  at  12:05 PM and we were given around two hours to go around the park. The Park is called Parco Delle Camelie Locarno,  simply  known as the Camellia Park.

I enjoyed walking  around the area  since I am also a flower or plant-lover. I simply  love gardening and it was one of the reasons why I booked this trip, to visit this beautiful garden park.  After our visit in this park, we were also given the chance to visit Locarno city. More updates to come soon!

The largest flowerbed of the park, dedicated to perfumed species and camellias, has been created next to the amphitheatre, which will enable visitors to sit in the most panoramic point of the area. From the top a small stream runs down to feed the new pond, whose waters reflect an elegant pavilion.

The latter houses a series of information panels on camellias. Today, with the work almost finished, the Park is home to 850 varieties of catalogued camellias including about forty different species and ten perfumed hybrids.

For your information where Locarno is located? It is the capital of the Locarno district, located on the northern tip of Lake Maggiore (Lago Maggiore) in the Swiss canton of Ticino, close to Ascona at the foot of the Alps.
