Started in 1975 and named after its founder Augusto Rinaldi Ceroni, Il Giardino delle Erbe was begun with the aim of conserving and cultivating plants of medicinal and aromatic interest. Owned by the Emilia Romagna Region and entrusted to the Municipality of Casola Valsenio, it is part of the Museum circuit of the province of Ravenna. In its terraces with a splendid view of the Vena del Gesso Romagnola, about 450 species of medicinal plants used in cooking, medicine and cosmetics are cultivated. Their cultivation is done according to the tradition of the monasteries in where, since the early Middle Ages, these plants have been grown in the gardens and in the “officine”. Il Giardino delle Erbe is a center of knowledge of medicinal plants, thanks to activities ranging from research and teaching to dissemination and experimentation, involving both experts and visitors of all ages. The Garden is open to visitors during the day, respecting the structures and cultivated parcels, but if you really want to experience the world of medicinal plants by touching and smelling them, book a guided tour or a workshop and go through the Perfumes, enter the Chamber of Wonders. And do not leave without buying some plants to grow in your own garden or on your terrace. Then every day you too can enjoy these intense perfumes!
