    You might expect more maintenance due for a former property of two popes and a queen.

    Although the garden is long in the tooth, there are some remarkable features, principally having to do with its art and location.

    In the garden is a fine fountain with a tufo center.

    In the Casino, the vivid Guercino fresco, "Aurora", with the remarkable illusionistic surround by Tassi, makes a squat, barrel-vaulted room seem towering. There is also a ceiling frescoed by Caravaggio (claimed), with the curious subject of alchemy, a popular subculture of Rome in the 17th century.

    I would upload photos if I could!
