Something unique in the world can be admired in the locality of Garavicchio (Pescia Fiorentina) on a hill, north of the Aurelia Road; this is "Il Giardino dei Tarocchi" (The Garden of the Tarots), inhabited by powerful sculptures of the mysterious symbols of the Tarots made by Niki Da Saint Phalle - an internationally famous artist whose works can be found in many European and no-European capitals.
These sculptures are covered with mirrors and very colourful ceramics, thus creating an original and fantastic contrast with the centuries-old trees that surround them.
The garden is open from the 15th of May to the 15th of October, every afternoon (Sunday excluded) from 14.30 to 19.30. In other months the garden can be visited by appointment.
