The Monsters Of Villa Palagonia

The Monsters Of Villa Palagonia
Bagheria is a town in the province of Palermo in Sicily, Italy. Without a doubt, the top touristic sight in the town of Bagheria is Villa Palagonia, a patrician villa built in 1715 by the architect Tommaso Napoli with the help of Agatino Daidone.
It's one of the earliest examples of Sicilian Baroque. However, its popularity comes mainly from the statues of monsters with human faces that decorate its garden and its wall, and earned it the nickname of 'The Villa of Monsters' (Villa dei Mostri).
