Architetto: Luigi Vanvitelli
Created at the instigation of Queen Maria Carolina of Austria, it is considered to be the first landscape garden in Italy. It became the Royal Botanical Garden of Caserta during the nineteenth century, and is home to exceptional examples of cinnamomum camphora, taxus baccata, cedrus libani and what is said to have been the first Camellia plant to arrive in Europe from Japan.
The garden is characterised by natural, hugely evocative scenes which incorporate exotic trees, groups of sculptures, winding paths and artificial ruins to spectacular effect. Be sure not to miss the Bath of Venus with the Criptoporticus, the English Palazzina and the Aperia, once used for beekeeping.
