Palazzo Patrizi, Bracciano, Lazio

ro

Palazzo Patrizi is a 16th-century castle built on the slopes of the Tolfa mountains near lake Bracciano. The estate covers miles of countryside, with a hunting lodge. The gardens, including one of the most beautiful rose gardens in Italy, are the work of the current marchesa, Umberta Patrizi Montoro. Hundreds of rambling roses cover both the castle and the walls, and grow in the kitchen garden beside the vegetables.
