The Tempietto (small temple)

A formal component in an English landscape

An intricate thicket of holm oaks hides a small circular temple in the lower part of the park. Inspired by the temple of the Sibyl of Tivoli, this neoclassical building owes its appearance to Ferdinand IV. A similar construction is located at the Royal Site of Carditello. In 1790, the king asked Carlo Vanvitelli to integrate the project of the English Garden, wanted by his wife, with a typical element of the Italian gardens. A labyrinth of box hedges was built around the colonnade of the temple, now lost.
