During the Venetian dominion of Valeggio sul Mincio, the patrician Gerolamo Nicolò Contarini bought the whole property which was then used entirely for agricultural purposes. There was also a small formal garden adjacent to the main house, created for the leisure of the noble family. This original garden was effectively the beginning of what would become the Sigurtà Garden Park today.
Nowadays, the park is 148 acres large and hosts an amazing and rare collection of flowers and plants from all over the world, from the Zinnias (Mexico and Central America) to the Crocuses and Fritillary (South Africa) to the Marigolds (North, Central and South America).
Among the main points of interest, it's worth mentioning "The Avenue of the Roses," a kilometer length, there blooms more than 30,000 highly selected Queen Elizabeth, Hybrid Polyantha and Floribunda roses. A new fascinating attraction is "The Maze," an extraordinary labyrinth of hedges made up of 1,500 yew trees (Taxus baccata). The path winds its way among the two meter tall evergreens that stretch over a rectangular area of 2,500 square meters. But there's so much more... like the Romeo and Juliet horizontal sun dial, the medicinal herbs garden, the surreal box-shaped trees, the water gardens (full of local and exotic water lilies) and the stone of eternal youth.
What are you waiting for? Get lost in the beauty, flowers and perfumes of this amazing place.
