The Garden of Ninfa houses the ruins of a medieval town, burned and plundered several times and then abandoned by its inhabitants. Today, around the banks of a pond, were the remains of a ghost town, with its walls, towers, churches and homes. In 1920 the Prince Caetani Gelasio decided to reclaim this property, with the intention of making the beautiful garden that is still admired. A veritable Garden of Eden declared a Natural Monument of the Italian Republic. His work was continued by Donna Lelia, the last member of the family, who settled in this beautiful romantic park, full of exotic species and decorated with fanciful fountains. In 1977, after his death, Ninfa was donated to the foundation Roffredo Caetani, who still manages the beautiful site. In the garden you can admire apple, cherry and magnolia trees and many varieties of rare plants and Mediterranean flora.
Although the territory of the Municipality of Cisterna di Latina, Ninfa is closely linked to the history of the Caetani family and then to Norma and Sermoneta. Do not miss a visit to the Castle Caetani and the ancient town.
