Castello - Isola di Sant'Elena
Also known as Parco delle Rimembranze. While not a park in the traditional sense, these gardens represent an open space especially densely planted with pines, criss-crossed by paths and bounded by tree-lined boulevards on the Island of S. Elena, at the very easternmost tip of Venice.
The island assumed its current arrangement in the 19th century, pursuant to construction of the bridges that connected it with the historic centre. The marine pine trees protect the island from the lagoon winds. Other species on the island include firs, linden trees, English oak, evergreen oaks, elms, ginkoes, cedars of Lebanon and palms.
