The beginning of the park dates back to 1848, when the Scaramanga family from Trieste bought the property from the villagers and built the Mirasasso mansion (meaning stone admirer). Throughout the years, the park grew and expanded as it was constantly being planted with several plants and seeds, brought by sailors and then park owner Giovanni Scaramanga di Hiccolo Cavaliere from different parts of the world. In 1890, a greenhouse was added, a miniature of the Schonbrun greenhouse near Vienna. The Scaramanga family managed the park until 1948. Today it is managed by the Municipal and residential joint-stock company of Sežana. The park includes 198 wooden plants and more than 100 exotic pot plants. Among the most beautiful and precioustrees prevail the cedar of Libanon, Bornmuller`s fir tree, Spanish fir tree, sequoia,... The park is a fascinating visiting site for the elderly and for the nature lovers as for school groups because it offers the opportunity to learn in detail about rare indigenous and foreign plants. It is most suitable for arranging learning excursions in nature as a guided tour of the park also includes a multiview of the park in our multimedia area, a visit to the photo gallery (the park under the Scaramanga family, the park`s plants, the Karst Trees exhibition with the Dendrological collection), the geological collection, the Minerals from the Slovenian Karst caves collection, the Archeological collection and the Dinosaurs from Kozina collection.
