Saffron comes from the lily family and was originally native to the Near East. The precious bulbous plant started its triumphant march to Europe from there. This plant was first cultivated in the first century BC in Persia and Greece: the saffron threads were used there as a royal luxury spice, herbal remedy and dye. In ancient Rome the spice was scattered over the roads during triumphal processions as a symbol of wealth. Nowadays the bulbous plant is cultivated in Afghanistan, Iran and in Kashmir as well as in the Mediterranean region, in Austria and Switzerland.
