Parco dei Mostri, Bomarzo

(3.3/5 based on 2,200+ 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.

  • The Park is nice, not very large, for children there is a playground with picnic area at the entrance to the parking lot. At the beginning there was provided a map but in terms of proportions is totally stoned, in fact looks huge the Park on it, while it is not. I liked it, but I honestly 10 € per person I thought was exaggerated and many were shocked by the prices, especially families with children.

  • The Park is quaint, but has two/three points really shameful. The ticket price is € 10 for adults and € 8 for children who at 4 years of age are charged ... 2 adults and 2 children, 36 €!!! The coverage of the structure where the bathrooms are totally in Eternity! A disgrace to a park so beautiful and full of greenery. In the Park, who has a dog can not enter ...

  • Very nice Park, a route almost dreamlike sometimes distressing Prince Orsini, who had it built in 1500. The bad thing is due to the total lack of indications and the carelessness of the path, at times disjointed and slippery due to the presence of MOSS is the path that the stones. and in addition, the excessive cost of admission, take away points to this wonder.
