Located in the neighboring region of Lazio, just 100 km away from Argentario Golf & Wellness Resort, is the mysterious Sacro Bosco (Sacred Wood) also known as Parco dei Mostri (Monster Park) in Bomarzo. This Manieristic monumental complex was created during the 16th century in the gardens of condottiero and art patron Pier Francesco Orsini. The design is attributed to Pirro Ligorio, and the sculptures to Simone Moschino. The park’s name stems from the many larger-than-life sculptures, some sculpted in the bedrock.
