Wonders of Bomarzo: the Monster Park (il Parco dei mostri)!

Among gigantic statues and monstrous creatures, Bomarzo Monster Park is a place to visit!

Created by architect Pirro Ligorio in 1552, strongly wanted by prince Orsini in his property, it was abandoned and restored after centuries.

Here’s a gallery of photos from our visit to this incredible place!

  1. Thank you, during the visit I didn’t notice the park signal… it makes it look like an amusement park, while it’s a sophisticated Mannerist masterpiece, still hard to be fully interpreted…
    Thank you for bringing me back there! 🙂

    1. Thank you for stopping by our blog! We simply loved the park and the feeling we had while there: you could almost see ladies for ancient centuries with their long dresses and their small sun umbrellas walking in there!
