A classic Gardenesque Style estate on a promontory overlook the Mediterranean. The site is dramatic and the plant collection exotic. The garden was made by an English family (the Hanburys) and is best understood as a coastal woodland garden of a type which is common in the Cornwall. It is very popular with plant-loving gardeners. There are flights of steps, paths, pools, fountains and garden structures. The garden is managed by the University of Genoa.
