Parco dei Mostri, Bomarzo

Categories: Gardens, Nature & Parks
Inspirock Rating:
3.3/5 based on 2,000+ reviews on the web
A place of myth, mystery, and horror, Parco dei Mostri was designed not to please, but to astonish. The park’s name stems from its many larger-than-life sculptures, which appear to be have been randomly strewn about the area. The symbolism of these Mannerist works of art is obscure, with figures of a turtle with a winged woman on its back, a huge elephant trampling a Roman legionary, and a dragon attacked by lions, to name just a few of the oddest examples. The layout of the lush garden, created in the 16th century, is attributed to architect Pirro Ligorio, and the sculptures to artist Simone Moschino. The garden, still a private property, has been a major tourist attraction since the 1970s. Tickets can be purchased at the entrance.

  • Magical place to get lost to find each other. If you can check it out on a weekday ... all tasted without confusion and enjoyed fully. Here in Italy we also have this: magical places where time stands still and transports us into another dimension. And another dimension right we talk when with the cost of a movie ticket you can be walking around in a sudden appearances and impetuous nature unimaginable scary sculptures, Ryan figures never predictable all dominated by the green of the Woods. A path that does not tire, one of a kind with some goodies like the hanging House (really difficult to remain standing) or the OGRE and all other illustrations-like beasts. We go abroad not deepen the knowledge of our beautiful Italy where everything is original and unique!

  • I had visited the Park a few years earlier. I've been struck by the improved handling and the services offered. Good starting point for a day trip with children.
