The beautiful garden,  covering an area of 1.5 hectares, features  hedges-line roads  and  shaped trees, ( it is the characteristic  of the Italian garden), and an ancient Holm oak woods once used for hunting and then in 700’ transformed into an area for having romantic walks. Anna Maria Suardo Guevara, Duchess of Bovino, was related to one of the biggest Bourbon dynasties.  During her youth , she was really beautiful, and it is said that even Casavona  fell in love with her.
