busts villa cimbrone

Villa Cimbrone in Ravello is the extraordinary creation of an eccentric English lord. In the past it was a large landholdings which passed from one generation to the various noble families of the area. All this until 1904 when he became owner William Beckett, English lord determined to make it "the most beautiful place in the world".
Today the villa is one of the most prestigious Hotel de Charme in the entire Mediterranean, while the gardens, visited even by non-residents, are one of the most beautiful and evocative of the Amalfi Coast.

Become, since the early '900, a real mix of styles and eras, Villa Cimbrone is characterized by different ethnic and cultural elements. Every corner of the thriving and lush garden is littered with statues, fountains, epigraphs, small temples and natural caves, which make it unique and charming. it is the perfect combination of the landscape tradition both English and Italian.

Just entering the gate, on the left, there is the Cloister, delightful courtyard in Arab-Sicilian-Norman style. Continuing to the left along shady Viale Immenso, covered by its initial part by a thick arbor of wisteria. Along the Viale you can see the figures of the Four dancers behind big and colorful hydrangeas and wonderful cherry trees. The Avenue of the Immense ends with the Statue of Ceres, which introduces visitors to the majestic Terrace of Infinity. Name was never more appropriate to describe this incomparable natural balcony decorated with marble busts of eighteenth century, whose view extends to the Amalfi Coast and up to the sea.
