Park of the monsters 01 The Park of Monsters travel top articles
The Park of Monsters in Italy has also been known as the “Villa of Wonders” and Bosco dei Mostri (“Monsters’ Grove”) over the years. Dating from 1552, the park consists of a garden filled with splendid sculpted monsters engraved with enigmatic Italian verses, as well as a twisted house. Designed by architect Pirro Ligorio, the park fell into disarray until it was restored by the Bettini family.
