Quality of food products at Alcantara Park

As you enter the Park, the hubbub of daily life falls silent, and each flower and each plant spins its own discourse.

They invite us to reflect on those who came before us in the fields of history. Each plant, flower, vegetable becomes a symbol, in the incessant flowing of the fertile and all-regenerating river.

Getting out of the city and in contact with plants, flowers and trees, will be a way to relive our history and culture, at the same time noble and folk, including the use of herbs for magical or medical purposes, and their meaning in the love language.
