    Huge park. Wild but with good care. Rich botanical and landscape. It is recommended to visit the viewpoints. There is a museum about botany, tiles and period objects. Lussich tomb is located on land on the other side of the street and little signposted. Great place to explore by bicycle. It is worth visiting with time throughout the Park.
