In the valley of Roses this complex has been created to show off the way in which the Roses are grown and harvested. The distilling area is quite amazing as are the gardens and waterfalls. The shopping area is very comprehensive and beautifully presented.

This is a very new and well-kept complex and apparently the aim is to inform tourists about rose oil. However, despite the hefty entrance fee (12lv, 6€ per person), hardly any explanation is provided. A guide costs even more money. There are however a couple...More
