In the tropical greenhouse you will find a pond with flowerbeds and a pedestrian path that allows you to see the vegetation present. Water plays a central role in the educational forest: you will admire ponds, streams, waterfalls, fountains and an artificial canal built centuries ago that runs through the woods and recreated the habitats of multiple forms of life and vegetation (water lilies, lotus flowers, marshes) and animals (geese, swans, ducks, eels, pigeons, carps).
