The villa and park of Monaciano is still today the centre of a vast estate that dates back to the seventeenth century. The current layout is the result of a unitary project, completed in the second half of the 1800's by the owner Alessandro Pucci Sansedoni. The garden, which is around three hectares, occupies a sloping space from the villa towards the countryside and is divided in two parts, each different from the other. The first is home to flowers and water features, whereas the second, in the lower part, is a romantic park with large woodland areas laid out with winding paths. The park has been restored over the last few years and documented in a small photographic exhibition open to the public.
