Palazzo Pfanner is a large 17th century house in the centro storico of Lucca. The gardens are one of the hidden gems of the city. They can be glimpsed from the path at the top of the city walls, but visitors are also able to enter and see the baroque statues and plants in the garden created in the 18th century.
Baroque representations of the seasons line the main thoroughfare.
The personification of Autumn:
Not all visitors are equally welcome…
