Giardino di Ninfa (Garden of Ninfa), Lazio, Italy

The garden rose up on the ruins of Ninfa, a medieval town, sacked and destroyed in 1381 and never rebuilt. Its name probably derives from an ancient Roman Nymphaeum (a temple dedicated to Nymphs), that rose up on this area.

A prince of the Caetani family reclaimed the area and created a English-style garden with the help of his mother, Lady Constance Adela Bootle-Wilbraham in 1920s.

The park has an area of 105 hectares (260 acres), it’s open to the public from April to November and it’s considered “the most romantic garden in the world”.
