For the first time in 400 years they open a hidden Garden of Camellias


Always mysterious and closed to the public, it was the love nest of Prince Mattias de Medici who had it created in the mid-17th century. Look at the video.

After a long restoration,

the Camellia Garden

inside Boboli in Florence is now ready to welcome visitors.

Always mysterious and closed to the public, it was the love nest of Prince Mattias de Medici (Video Capture).

This small green space,

never before open to the public

, was created in the mid-17th century by the brother of Grand Duke Ferdinand II de' Medici, Prince Mattias de' Medici: legend has it that, also adorned with jets of water from the ground and from the fountains,

it was their love nest.

History reminds us that, centuries past, this area was reserved for some members of the grand ducal family and was dedicated to the cultivation of

exotic plants and rare varieties of citrus

, later replaced in the 19th century by various species of camellias, still present.

The restoration cost almost 1 million dollars

Of interest is also the architectural structure of the palace,

typically from the 17th century.

The water games that characterized it in the past are now evoked through a strategic use of light.

The garden was created in the middle of the 17th century (Video capture).

The garden was in poor condition for many years

, but, since 2021, thanks to an internal loan from the Uffizi Galleries combined with funds from the Tuscany Region project "The Renaissance in Tuscany: Medici villas and gardens", it has started an architectural restoration project.

The project began with structural, botanical and plant engineering tasks, which required an investment of 875 thousand euros.

This place can be entered as part of escorted tours in April and May.
