FERRARI GARDEN

Maks Fabiani /
LOCATION: Štanjel

The Ferrari Garden was built in the period between the world wars as part of the Villa Ferrari at Štanjel.

Maks Fabiani designed the garden on terraces, following the structure of the old village.

Fabiani’s design was based on the position and shape of the terrain. The architect used traditional stone support walls and stairways, but also elements not found in the Karst region. The most recognisable part of the garden is the oval pond with a small islet, into which water flows from a complex water supply system.

Today, the Ferrari Garden is a cultural monument of national significance.

The tour will be led by local guide Nataša Kolenc.
