I’m not sure when hallucinogenic drugs first made their way on the world scene, but I’m thinking it was around 1552, when this bizarre sculpture park was designed. A nice little park full of these really weird, interesting, and somewhat grotesque, sculptures. Very strange, but...More

Parco dei Mostri or the "park of monsters" was a strangely interesting experience. Mythical creatures in a beautiful park like setting. A walking guide in English was very helpful; fall colors were very evident in November. The park was uncrowded, serine and even beautiful waterfalls...More

This is an oddly themed pRk that is quite intriguing. You can wander through shaded pathways and take in the giant stone carvings,shaped like monsters, temples and animals. Kids will enjoy exploring all that the park has to offer. The electricity was out the day...More

This enjoyable walk in a park like setting is unlike anything I have seen before. Beautiful but slightly unsettling sculptures that were saved from centuries of over growth. Fantastic walk cost 10 euro per person.

Wow! The closest I have come to this artistic accomplishment is Vigeland/Frogner Park in Norway--however those are statues of people, not of monsters! It was created in the 1500s, declined after years of forested growth and was then cleaned up and opened for the public....More
