    La Reggia - the English Garden

    by Polly74 Written Dec 3, 2004

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    visiting the English garden...

    This is one of the loveliest section of the park: the English Gardens, embellished with a tiny lake and fake ancient ruins.

    Take care that the English Garden closes one hour earlier than the big Gardens.

    The staircase

    The majestic main staircase, whose 116 steps were all carved from one gigantic block of stone, is a perfect combination of rich marbles and dramatic perspectives. It leads to the splendiferous 25 rooms of the royal apartments.
    In the ceiling there was a space for musicians who started to play music as soon as the king entered the Reggia.

    The royal palace

    caserta

    The Royal Palace was begun in 1752 by Vanvitelli for the bourbon King Charles III.
    The 82 metres high waterfall at the end of the park is really impressive. The water is coming from a special aquaduct. If you are to tired to walk back to the castle it's always possible to go by bus. Don' forget to visit the park at the right end. It has a lot of tropical vegetation , most of it imported.

    Front side

    The palace was the last great building of the Italian baroque, and though you can't visit each of its 1200 rooms, the ones you will see are as extravagant as they are exquisite.
