We happened upon this garden and very surprised with its art. This is such a quiet little town and the art here was unusual for the setting. We really enjoyed our time and the art in this garden.

If you like gardens, this is definitely worth a visit. Well maintained. Calm surroundings right in the center of the village.

The gardens of Leoni are beautifully situated. During our visit, there was a exhibition of mythic creature statues, including Icarus, Charon and Minotaurus. Very impressive in this quiet place.

All evergreen: Geometrical box hedges, a boundary holm-oak hedge-on-stilts. The only flowers seem to be a china rose, a wisteria, a bignonia. Amid castle ruins remodelled as a Belvedere to overlook the view. A stunning central focus of a giant white statue of a Granduke...More

It is a nice quite garden to visit when you are in this lovely hilltop village. But not worth a special trip to see.

When you have a drink at Bar Central in San Quirico, you can always take a look at this garden, it is nice, but nothing really out of the ordinary.
