A true archaeological and agricultural jewel in the Valle dei Templi (now returned to splendour after decades of abandon)
FAI - Giardino della Kolymbetra
The garden of Kolimbethra is an extraordinary place for the magical blend of nature and the wealth of archaeological finds which are still being discovered today. It occupies an area of approximately five hectares inside the Valle dei Templi, within tuff walls making up its natural perimeter, standing between Tempio di Castore e Polluce and Tempio di Vulcano. Many unique plant species grow here, some of which are no longer cultivated today, outside the property.
