Quinta Normal Park

When the future was dreamed as a field
Improves urban life


Founded in 1842, the “Quinta Normal de Agricultura” became a center for agricultural, viticultural, forestry, and botanical experimentation, a true laboratory for envisioning a future from species and nature. For this purpose, its first director, the Italian agronomist Luigi Sada di Carlo, imported seeds of species from all over the world to shape the country´s future productivity and conservation efforts. Over time, the species acclimatized in Quinta Normal transformed the entire national territory, changing ecosystems and greening the cities of Chile.
