Bomarzo - Sacro Bosco
- Restaurants - Services -
By the middle of the 16th century, Vicino Orsini created, in his estate at Bomarzo, a labyrinth of symbols, where "Ladies and knights" might look for what they most wanted and wonder till they got lost.
He populated the "sacred wood" with monsters and tortoises, obelisks, nymphaums and giant statues. After Vicino Orsini's death nobody cared any longer for this jewel of mannerist art, that after centuries of oblivion has been sawed, restored and made know by the present owner famiglia Bettini. Now men of letters, artists, students and tourists come from all over the world to admire this work unique in its unsay. At th entrance of the "sacred wood" we find some lines of a poet of the 16th century.
