This “English Garden” was laid out in 1850-51 by the architect Giovan Battista Filippo Basile in what was considered to be the English manner, following the lie of the land, and also taking inspiration from certain exotic models; some years later, a little Arab-style temple was added by his son Ernesto. Here there some pics for you!:)

Beautiful! I miss Palermo so much, I hope I come back soon!! The city is a joy for anyone that loves palm trees, plants and flowers.

Well, the Volcano Etna is near Catania, while I live in Palermo, on the other side of Sicily... but, maybe, I could organize a trip...:)

Clearly I didn't have enough time in Palermo. It deserves a lot of exploration, there are surprises everywhere.

Here is a picture of Etna from the Taormina thread, which I posted after visiting in 2006.

Absolutely beautiful. I definitely need to visit Italy (Palermo), whether it be during college or fresh out of. :D
