The Villa Gregoriana park was created in 1835 by order of pope Gregory XVI following the umpteenth flooding of the Aniene. It was decided to reorder the river bed and to transform a beautiful, but dangerous site into a model of integration between nature and artistic invention. The project provided for tunnelling through Mount Catillo, diverting the course of the river to safeguard the town, and building an extraordinary natural garden dominated by the temples of the ancient Tibur: a stunning landscape of dense woods, steep cliffs, caves and waterfalls. All through the nineteenth century, Villa Gregoriana was the destination of sovereigns, travellers, poets and artists, all captivated by its mannered beauty. Highlights include the fascinating Grande Cascata that hurls its turbulent mass of water 100 metres below, and the natural caves of Neptune and the Sirens with their extraordinary succession of chasms and little waterfalls. Towards the end of the 1900s, degradation and a progressive state of abandon made it necessary to intervene to safeguard the park and its history. In 2002, the site was entrusted to the FAI which conducted impressive interventions on the landscape and has now returned Villa Gregoriana to public use.
