There is a Botanical Park (Private Garden) on the property:
The Parco Della Nave was built in the second half of the 1800s and became part of the "landscape" gardens founded in Italy from the late 1700s to the late 1800s , a century in which this widespread style of garden was known as the "English" or "Naturalistic" style.
This was a period of diffusion and an area of interest for the Collectionists when several species of exotic plants were used.
During this period it was the fashion to create "Gardens of acclimatization" for exotic plants and Della Nave Garden is a typical example of this; with its interesting and rare botanic collection including 700 forest trees and 120 species covering a 32.000 metre area.
The various characteristics of the different species of trees create a wonderful sight/scene for all seasons throughout the year. During Autumn in particular there is the golden yellow Gingko Biloba, originating from China, the iridescent red of the Taxodium Disticum from North America and the brilliant green of the Japanese Criptomerie. The Sequoia from North America and the Lemon trees from Libano and Marocco never fail to create a stir. The tree pictured in the photograph (Sequoiadendron Giganteum B.) is taller than 35 metres, has a 5.20 metre circumference, is over one hundred years old and is one of the "monumental trees of Italy ”
