The Rezia alpine botanical gardens Bormio
Established in 1979, this botanical garden is the newest in Italy. Located 1500 metres above sea level at the foot of Mount Reit, near the Stelvio National Park north of Bormio, it occupies nearly 15 000 square metres and is home to over 2500 types of plants divided into four macrohabitats: the National Park’s flora, flora from European and international mountain ranges, Arctic and Antarctic species.
The park is popular not only with experts, but also with amateur photographers and families who want to give their children a chance to learn more about the environment and teach them to love and respect nature.
It plays an acknowledged scientific role and is popular with school outings, as well gathering, preserving and reproducing rare plants.
