A travel diary belonging to professor Salsapariglia, a botanist and explorer sent overseas in the eighteenth century to find new plants, is found in the convent of Los Jeronimos, not far from Lisbon. The expedition visits bizarre and surprising islands that have never been seen before: the islands of time, corners of the earth where time has stopped, just as it was millions of years ago. An extraordinary trip to discover the mysterious islands that exemplify the ecosystems of the various prehistoric periods.
