Pin It

Lucca, Italy, built in 1667, has all the characteristics of a late 16th century building. There is a beautiful wide staircase that leads to the great elegant loggia overlooking the 18th century formal Italian style garden attributed to Filippo Juvarra (1678-1736). At the centre of the garden there is a fountain pond surrounded by baroque statues of the gods and goddesses of ancient Roman mythology, flower-beds, and big terracotta vases with lemon trees, according to the Tuscan tradition. The inside is full of artwork and it also contains a selection of surgical instruments that were used by Dr. Pfanner.
