The work of Filippo Bentivegna is extraordinary. His work is set amongst olive groves and the setting is both peaceful and inspiring.

Not what we were expecting but an interesting drive to get there and a great walk on site. Unusual and well worth a visit - you will not see anything like it elsewhere.

If you're a lover of outsider art or just the bizarre, this sculpture garden is definitely worth a visit. Close to Sciacca, it's a fun divertissement when headed to the beach or parts elsewhere.

Well if you are in the area I do advise to have a wonder around this garden. It has a particular atmosphere, and you can imagine the artist living there on his own with his sculpted heads...it is the combination of the place and the...More

Fun visit to a quirky place. We were lucky enough to visit on a day when it was relatively empty so could fully enjoy the art. The heads are dotted all around the gardens - too many to count. It cost 5 euros per person...More

If you like seeing hundreds and hundreds of heads carved in stone this is fantastic. There is a cafe and toilets and the place is rarely busy. We had it to ourselves and it was worth a visit but we were not blown away!
