taken in the Burcina Park, Biella, Piedmont, Italy (ca.10 kms from where we live )

Located 7 km from Biella is the Parco Burcina Nature Reserve. It occupies almost all of the hill very near the pre-Alpine foothills of the Biellese.

The park was a gift from the Piacenza family whose roots go back to the middle of the 19th-century. Giovanni Piacenza, a wool industrialist, decided to buy the hill and turn it into a park - one of the most admired in Italy.

Today the slopes of the hill are covered with beeches, pines, fir trees, cedars and various aromatic plants. Above all it is known for its rhododrendons (rhododendra) that comes from the Caucasus and the Himalayas.

They flower between mid May and the beginning of June and are well worth a visit. It also harbours many species of trees that come from all over the world.
