The work of Filippo Bentivegna is extraordinary. His work is set amongst olive groves and the setting is both peaceful and inspiring.

Not what we were expecting but an interesting drive to get there and a great walk on site. Unusual and well worth a visit - you will not see anything like it elsewhere.

If you're a lover of outsider art or just the bizarre, this sculpture garden is definitely worth a visit. Close to Sciacca, it's a fun divertissement when headed to the beach or parts elsewhere.

Its very beautiful place to visit if there is not so many tourists. I visited it in october and had very lovely walk to discover every stoneface and get fully of its inspirational athmosphere.

Went because it was done by family relative. Was very nice with good history. Very pleased. A relaxing walk through trees and sculptures.

If you like seeing hundreds and hundreds of heads carved in stone this is fantastic. There is a cafe and toilets and the place is rarely busy. We had it to ourselves and it was worth a visit but we were not blown away!
