The rose garden Vacunae Rosae is situated in the wooded area of the Goddess Vacunae, the goddess of fertility and well being of the Sabina. At the entrance, there is a garden of stones, inspired by the Far East, where the visitor can meditate on the beauty and destiny of the rose and from where the “visitor” starts an intellectual ascent towards the paradise garden. The scenery is delimited by bearing gateways, covered by walls of roses. The entire circumference is crowned by sets of garlands with an amazing chromatic variation for 800 meters. On the exterior of the whole garden, one can admire sacred trees that love roses, almonds, pomegranate and tamarisk. The planimetrical configuration of the rose garden forms the shape of an angel's wing and can boast as many as 7.000 rose bushes with not less than 5.000 species. The rose garden proposes an historical, cultural and artistic journey into the world of roses.
