The Castle’s Park was designed and created between the end of the 1800 and the beginning of the 1900 by Duke Giuseppe Visconti di Modrone (1879 – 1941). He personally designed the project and followed its creation. His objective was to create an amusing, never boring location. Still today, while visiting the garden, you can discover new corners and surprisingly rich perspectives.

The Castle’s Park reflects the personality of the duke It’s an eclectic place, where different inspirations cohabit in a harmonious way. The rational lines of the Italian style garden and the lanes share the romantic atmosphere of the woods, of the winding paths, of the fountains and marble statues caressed by the climbing plants like ivy, musk and rose bushes.
In the over 120,000 sq. m. of park, you can find native plants of the area like oaks, elms, dark poplars, hazel trees, field maples, cherry trees, hornbeams and ash trees; together with more exotic varieties like cedar trees, American cypresses and different types of bamboo. The Duke selected plants that could give him an architectural effect, and that could make the garden attractive all year around. Therefore, we can find many evergreen plants, like cypresses, pine trees, holm-oaks, yew trees, myrtle shrubs and boxwood trees. Roses are the protagonists among the flowers, with their bright colours and delicate perfume.
Some ultra-centenarian plants stand out from the scene, like a 150-year-old plantain, the oldest tree of the park; an 80-year-old lime tree and a wonderful group of Lebanon cedar trees.
In the park, there are many quiet corners, where the Castle’s inhabitants and guests can take a walk, play, relax and enjoy the shade of the trees and the fresh water of the fountains. Places that still today welcome the guests and visitors of Grazzano Visconti. The most beautiful locations can be found in the rear part of the castle, like the great Belvedere-lane, Bacco’s stop, the labyrinth and the small house that duke Giuseppe wanted for the outdoor games of his two smaller daughters, Uberta and Ida Pace called Nane by all her family.
