MY Life in pics: "Bomarzo: the Sacred grove"

The Ogre

Bomarzo is a town of the province of Viterbo (central Italy), whose main attraction is a strange but beautiful garden also known as the "Park of the Monsters". It is the work of Pier Francesco Orsini for the death of his beloved wife Giulia Farnese.

Let's have a photo trip into this magical world...
