About Park Villa Pallavicino

The Park of Villa Pallavicino in Stresa is a favorite tourist attraction on Lake Maggiore, a paradise of flowers and animals to delight visitors of all ages. The Park was originally the idea of the Neapolitan statesman Ruggero Bonghi, who fell in love with Lake Maggiore and decided in 1855 to purchase the land and build a small house for himself. The estate was begun in the late 17th century by Clelia Durazzo Grimaldi, who established the Giardino botanico Clelia Durazzo Grimaldi at that time.
