Parco Ducale, Modena: 3 reviews and 8 photos
What was once the vast garden of the Palazzo Ducale is now a public park known as il Giardino Ducale Estense. It is a Renaissance-style garden which was created in the 17th century as part of the ducal palace. It remained a private royal garden until 1739, when Duke Francesco III turned it into a public park, then named Giardini Publici. Within the park is a small palace known as la Palazzina Ducale, designed by Gaspare Vigarani in the 16th century and expanded in the 17th century. In the early 20th century, the park was renamed Giardino Ducale Estense.
