History

The Sigurtà Garden Park, is an oasis of nature just a few kilometres from Lake Garda, and easily accessible from the cities of Mantua and Verona. The woods are home to centuries-old trees such as the Great Oak, and there are boundless lawns, points of interest and breathtaking views. These and much more make up the treasury that has been tended at the Sigurtà Park for over six centuries, with the original garden dating back to 1407. Sights not to be missed when visiting the Sigurtà Park include Tulipanomania, the extraordinary fl owering of more than a million tulips that in March and April, bringing great colour to the garden park each spring in new forms over its lawns, green spaces and through the its woods, in what is one of the most important displays of its kind in the world. There are the 40,000 boxwood plants, the 18 decorative ponds, the Great Lawn, the famous Avenue of the Roses with 30,000 ancient re-flowering roses, and the Maze, with its 1500 yews and its central tower. And there is more: such as the 50 varieties of annuals that come into bloom in the summer and the early autumn, the Flowerbeds Avenue, the hundreds of multicolored water lilies coming to the fore in the summer months, the Hermitage, a small neo-gothic style temple dating back to 1792, and the Castelletto, custodian of the historical memories of prestigious meetings of Nobel Prize winners and scientists. For the little ones the Educational Farm is a must. A place where they can fi nd out how farmyard animals live, and they will also want to go to the Valley of the deer, where they can enjoy watching these beautiful animals.
The Park can be visited on foot, by bicycle, either with your own bike or renting one from the Gardens where traditional and electric cycles are available, or aboard the panoramic train with a voice-guide, on the electric shuttle accompanied by a guide or driving a comfortable electric golf-cart equipped with a GPS satellite tracking system.
Awarded with national and international awards, the latest is that of Best Global Attraction 2020, thanks to its 600,000 square metres of woods, lawns and extraordinary blooms, the Park continues to fascinate hundreds of thousands of visitors of all ages.

Henry Cocker

Henry Cocker was one of the most famous landscape artists of the twentieth century. In Italy he designed in the thirties, together with the Scottish Captain Neil McEacharn, the vast landscaped park of Villa Taranto in Pallanza (Lago Maggiore). He is remembered for a number of other interventions, including the yard of the Municipality of Fossalta di Piave and some areas of the Park Sigurtà of Valeggio, in which he transfused the distinctly British flavor to a colorful landscaping with perennials and bulbs. H. Cocker left many articles and books.
