His is one of the richest collections of camellias on the entire European continent. Numerous species and types of azaleas, rhododendrons, wisterias, peonies and dogwoods can be admired.

Following pleasant paths you can see a thousand varieties of camellias and some hundred varieties of magnolias, azaleas and rhododendrons, as well as peonies and wisteria, all inserted into the green of pines, junipers, hedera and exotic trees rare in Europe.
