In this article I want to show you some shots taken by me few summer ago to the Borromeo Palace gardens on the Bella Island. This gardens of 200 years are baroques style; you can find a lot of statues, obelisks, staircases and stone balustrades. Many trees come from the Orient.

Statues and architectural decorations alternate with geometries and botanical preciousness. The trusted gardeners prune, fertilize, experiment, preserving this place of enchantment from the passage of time. At the gates of the garden a large camphor for almost two hundred years welcomes visitors who crossed the great gate find before them the splendor of the amphitheater that scenically occupies the central part of the island.

The Italian Baroque style garden is developed on parterres and terraces placed at different heights and alternates statues, obelisks, stairways and stone balustrades that create a scenographic system designed to symbolize the power of the noble family.

The visitor can still walk along the avenues of the garden up to the top of the largest terrace, a true command bridge of the island from which to admire the expanse of the lake and the charm of this garden forged by man.

An amazing place that I visited last summer with a few friends, a day in relax inside nature, the lake is wonderful and this gardens are so beautiful and curated, how you can see from the pictures below that I made with my camera.
