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.

Parco dei Mostri Reviews
Parco Particolare .. sfizioso da vedere e fotografare ma ingresso 10€ mi sembra troppo . In meno di un'ora riuscite a visitarlo tutto more »Particular Park. delicious to see and photograph but entry €10 it seems too. In less than an hour you can visit it all
Pieno di attrazioni di roccia a forma di mostri. E' assolutamente da vedere perchè merita. si possono fare le foto e ci sono aree ristoro more »Full of Monster-shaped rock attractions. It's a must see why it deserves. You can take pictures and there are concession stands
Posto bellissimo da visitare e perderci qualche ora... credo a mio avviso che 10 euro sono eccessivi comunque la struttura presenta un ampio parcheggio bagni pulitissimi area picnic, forse poco pratic... more »Beautiful place to visit and miss a few hours ... I think in my opinion that is still over 10 euros are ample parking spotless bathrooms picnic area, perhaps impractical for disabled people in some areas not equipped with ramps
It's wonderful place to visit and it's very curious for its history, it would need a bit more money to return to its original beauty, that's the sad side.
We spent several hours strolling through this lovely park. We brought our own picnic lunch and ate it sitting on the grass by the temple but there is also a picnic area with tables. The washrooms are clean and there is a small cafeteria.
Awesome place to check out. The statues are very cool and the park is relaxing to wander around. Definitely check this out on your way out of Roma to Tuscany.
Beautiful park with 35 statues dating back 500 years. Ideal to spend an hour or two with the kids.
Hidden gem in the middle of Umbria, just 2 hours from Rome. I recommend going by car as when you get off the train, the site is a good distance away (with essentially no taxis).
