In 1901 Professor Arturo Hruska, a dentist and well-known naturalist, arrived in Gardone Riviera and immediately noticed the special climate of the area. Between 1910 and 1971 he planted a botanical garden that extended for a little more than 1.5 hectares. In it he had more than 500 species of plants from every continent and different climates: magnolias, Tibetan primroses, reeds of every size, iris and ferns, including the '"osmunda regalis". There is a huge variety of succulent and subtropical plants.

"I could have already been in Verona this evening, but I was close to a magnificent product of nature, a splendid spectacle, Lake Garda. I did not want to miss it, and I was repaid for my detour." These are the words of Goethe, written in his travelogue on September 12, 1786. Torbole was the first town he came across: "When you arrive below, on the northernmost tip of the lake you'll find a town named Torbole with a small harbor, or better yet, a dock".
