Il Giardino della Valle, Cernobbio

Categories: Gardens, Nature & Parks
Inspirock Rating:
4.3/5 based on 65+ reviews on the web
Over 30 years ago, nonna Pupa single handedly cleaned up an illegal garbage dump on Lake Como and turned into a beautiful botanical garden for her community. Every spring Pupa organizes free concerts and art exhibits in the garden.

Today, at 88 years old, she still works in the garden but she is concerned about the future.

What will happen to the plants and flowers when Pupa will no longer be able to care for them?

This Facebook page aims to build a community of garden lovers across the world to exchange ideas and to help Pupa continues to care for the garden.

  • In Cernobbio (CO), lies this beautiful garden of exotic plants and flowers, many also from other useful information, in a forest that you visit for free, really spectacular the many species of plants that come from everywhere. We would recommend anyone to visit shoes properly this valley. Recommended to all!

  • We found this place by chance and we were delighted by this place. You even have some banches to contemplate your surrendings with free books! Worth visiting 
  • The garden has two entrances, one on the bottom, going towards villa d'Este on the left, if you're lucky you can park the car there is a from above and you get there by following the signs to the village. Very cute, is not a park but a garden created on either side of a stream that you can cross at different points with jumpers. Nice for the kids and take a ride with a difference in Cernobbio.
