This Italian style garden was founded in 1555 by the Countess Paola Ludovica Torelli della Guastalla and was remodelled in 1938.

Today it is one of Milan’s most beautiful green areas, located near the Duomo. Points of interest include the Baroque fishpond, built in lieu of the original 16th-century pond, a 17th-century aedicule depicting the Virgin Mary and angels and a small Neoclassical temple designed by Luigi Cagnola.

The gardens are also home to many different tree species such as tulip trees, trifoliate orange trees, Atlas cedars and horse chestnuts, making it a quiet and peaceful retreat in the heart of one of the country’s busiest cities. Given the garden’s diminutive size, visitors will make short work of exploring it, but it’s worth taking a moment to sit down on one of the benches and enjoy the peace and beauty.
