Nestled among sweet-smelling citrus trees, Palazzo Pfanner dates back to 1660, when it was commissioned by the Moriconi family, members of the merchant noble class. The palazzo's magnificent Baroque garden is not to be missed, with its copious flowers, forest plants, and 18th-century statues of Greek deities. At its center, you'll find an octagonal fountain and lemon house adorned with lions and a basilisk--the emblem of the Controni family, who took ownership of the palace in the late 1600s. After a stroll in the ancient bamboo cane, yew, and magnolia-shaded garden, head inside to see the 18th-century frescoes adorning the residence. You'll also find period furnishings, sacred objects, and a 14th-century statue of Archangel Michael. Don't miss the exhibit of ancient medical instruments and texts that belonged to Dr. Pietro Pfanner around the turn of the century.

In December, with many tourists around Lucca, the Palace is closed. You see the garden from the top of the walls, but unfortunately reopens in spring.

A breakthrough even was built especially to admire the garden and its aisles decorated with Statues. So if you're "off season" don't be no desperate... with Lucca plan post you the platform of San Frediano... c is free, but for my part I will return in season to admire the interiors of the villa (there seem to be possibilities of accommodation ... in rooms of luxury).
Probabilmente il miglior modo di vedere il giardino di palazzo Pfanner apprezzando il contesto con sullo sfondo san Frediano è passeggiando sulle mura di Lucca more »Probably the best way to see the garden of palazzo Pfanner appreciating the context against the backdrop of san Frediano is walking on the walls of Lucca
Amazing garden!! It's so quiet and so well-managed that it makes the perfect place tp rest after lunch. There is no bar or whatsoever service, but perhaps that is the reason why it is so quiet and relaxing.
Beautiful Place to visit! If you go to Lucca, visit palazzo pfanner!
Very unique accommodations in a 400 year old palace. Great host and beautiful gardens.
An interesting part of Lucca's history. A pretty palace but it's the garden that's really unique.
The garden is beautiful .. but the museum.. if you can call it that way didn't worth the ticket, I'd raccomand to stick to the garden.
