Monster Park - Bomarzo, Italy
The Monster Park is featured in our "Monsters and Myths" tour.

In the Roman countryside of Tuscia, in the medieval town of Bomarzo nested in a thick surreal forest is the Monsters Park, or “Parco dei Mostri” in Italian.

Here you will find giant sculptures of larger-than-life mythological figures and legendary monsters such as giants, dragons, ogres, monsters and creatures, emerging from the moss covered ground or hewn out of natural rocks within the park.

This 16th century mythical garden was commissioned by Pier Francesco Orsini, member of the famous Orsini family and a patron of the arts. He dedicated the garden to the memory to his deceased wife Giulia Farnese -- and claimed it was “only to ease the heart”. The Orsini Castle itself still crowns the town of Bomarzo.
