Landgoed De Wiersse

Away from the world, surrounded by its farmland and woods, lies the moated manor house of De Wiersse.

Reggia di Caserta

Reggia di Caserta – Caserta Royal Palace and Park were designed in the second half of the eighteenth century by the architect Luigi Vanvitelli, commissioned by Charles Bourbon, son of Philip V of Spain and Elisabetta Farnese. The 122 hectare park is divided into 2 parts. The first contains vast parterres, separated by a central avenue which leads to the Margherita fountain and gives access to several avenues bordered with copses of limes, hornbeams and holm oaks. The Castellucia is to the left of the palace, in the so-called ”old wood”, a miniature castle in which the young Ferdinand IV practised mock battles. Further north is the Great Fishpond, an artificial lake with a little island where naval battles were simulated.

The culture and creativity of these two personalities resulted in an eclectic revivalist architectural ensemble, focused on the Manueline, Renaissance and Classical Styles.
