The Royal Palace of Caserta and its park became UNESCO World Heritage Sites in 1997. Commissioned from Luigi Vanvitelli by Charles III of Bourbon in the 18th century, the palace, a triumph of Italian Baroque, is one of the famous Neapolitan architect’s most important works on account both of its magnificent exterior and of the dazzling beauty of its interior. Built around four monumental courtyards in which every detail has been meticulously thought through, the palace sits in a picturesque park rich in fountains, gardens and ornamental woods. The sumptuous residence is an ideal and original combination of two other royal residences: the French kings’ Palais de Versailles and the Spanish monarchs’ Palacio del Escorial in Madrid.
