Rastelli Park is located in Portorož, which is one of the largest tourist destinations in Slovenia and the most important tourist destination on the Slovenian coast. Rastelli's park was renovated in the second half of the 19th century when spa tourism began to thrive in Portorož.
Mr Rastelli owned the park at the time. The beginnings of health tourism in Portoroz are attributed to patri Benedictines, who treated rheumatic and other diseases with highly concentrated seawater. Until the beginning of tourist development, fertile soil, with a favorable climate, enabled the development of agriculture, especially the cultivation of olive trees and vines, and the seaside position gave rise to salt production and fisheries. The beginnings of vibrant trade and economic development in the area date back to the Roman times. Archaeological finds in the wider area of Portoroz testify to the many estates, called villae rusticae, located in sheltered locations, in convenient locations and near drinking water springs. Rastelli Park boasts many types of ornamental trees and shrubs. Most tree species have already reached a high age.
The park is home to red-beech, cedar, mulberry, magnolia, yew and lagerstremia. We also find the thickest evergreen oak in Slovenia. The 100-year-old giant is 17 feet tall and has a trunk circumference of 375 inches.
