Official site

The Pietra Corva Alpine Gardens – located in the heart of site Sassi Neri-Pietra Corva – was instituted in 1967 by doctor Antonio Ridella, a veterinarian with a passion for botany, who wished to create a botanical garden dedicated to the flora of the Alps which he had observed on his frequent hiking trips to the Alps and Apennines but also on the Pyrenees, the Carpathian Mountains, the Caucasus, the Andes and the Himalaya.

The gardens are located on the side of the Pietra di Corvo Mountain, at an altitude of over 950 metres. Today they are managed by the Province of Pavia and house over 1200 plant species, divided by country and natural habitat, and offer guided tours, workshops, courses and lectures on the purposes of botanical gardens.

At the garden’s guesthouse and visitor centre one can learn more about the territory, the garden’s flora and its habitat.
