Why choose Capri Philosophical Park in Anacapri
Gunnar Adler Karlsson iwas a Swedish professor with a deep love for Capri who decided to build a small treasure for the island and its people along the scenic Migliera path. His Capri Philosophical Park is a place where wanderers can relax and meditate just a short walk from the Punta Carena Lighthouse.
The Philosophical Park - the only of its kind in Europe - stretches across a lush brushland of Mediterranean flora and is crisscrossed by shaded paths, an invitation to take refuge here for a few hours. With the the sweeping views and low-flying seagulls as a backdrop, visitors are invited to take a walk along the park's route marked by a number of tiles hand-painted with thought-provoking quotes by the world's most famous philosophers, scientists, and writers.
Now the Philosophical Park is run by the non-profit organization Fondazione Adler-Ehrnford-Karlsson which was created specifically to preserve this plot of land for international wisdom and for enjoying the wild Mediterranean vegetation.
