    Secondly....

    by coceng Updated Sep 8, 2003
    The way to the garden...


    Secondly, the residence garden itself. Many names have been called of this strange place.
    Bosco Sacro, a Sacred Grove or Bosco dei Monstri, the Monsters' grove but today it is known as The Monsters Park.
    It was an un-finished Renaissance garden & was neglected for almost 300 years.
    When it was rediscovered early 20th century, it was overgrown with trees, everything was half collapsed; It was then called The Sleeping Garden of Bomarzo.

    First Reason...

    by coceng Updated Sep 8, 2003
    Bomarzo Castle


    Bomarzo is a small town located near Viterbo, north of Rome.
    First reason to go to Bomarzo. To see the Castle looming on top of the hill.
    The Castle was belong to the Orsini family. The Orsini family lived in this castle in the 16th century & after the wife, Julia Farnese died, Vicino Orsini started to draft the plan for a residence garden to woe his lost love over his wife.

    by coceng Written Aug 14, 2003

    While at the same time, enjoying the scenery around Bomarzo. Amazing !

    My trip had been a successful one ! I am pround saying that. No tourists like me around, just family-type visitors who came here to enjoy the beautiful sceneries & the Parco dei Mostri.

    Be there !

    Apartment Houses...

    I would call these buildings as the apartment houses in Bomarzo. Truly Italian but I could still see these 'apartment houses' in Malaysia.
