The millennial Park
Surrounding the estate, the rich and suggestive Park enjoys a stunning view.
It is proud of its countless varieties of plants, which make it a true end-of-XIX-century garden. Magnolias, bay and palm trees, cypresses, maritime pines, lime and Lebanon cedar trees, oaks, cherry trees, and many more fruit trees.
They compete for visibility with jasmines, camellias, hortensias, oleanders, pitosfori, geraniums, tulips, and ancient roses.
Each season has got its own marvellous scents and colors. A wide and terraced English lawn extends towards the plain of the Isonzo river and the surrounding Collio hills.
Taking a stroll along the walkways, one can enjoy the natural beauty of the Park, which is therefore the ideal framework for enchanting photo shoots.
The fountain of Villa Attems
In 1760, Nicolò Pacassi, architect at the court of
Maria Theresia of Austria, designed the fountain now located in the park of Villa Attems.
The fountain escaped World War I bombardments. Afterwards, it was moved from the park of the Villa in Piedimonte to the one in Lucinico.
The fountain is a romantic meeting place for suggestive photo shoots or cocktail sipping with guests during parties and events.
Originally, some Lucinico residents used the well of the
Villa to collect water.
Other four wells are uniformely dislocated around the village. During Christmas and Easter time, all the wells are decorated for a competition among the historical hamlets of the village.
The well in the park at Villa Attems rests in Borgo Tirolo. Today, the well has only an historical and decorative function despite the fact that it is still connected to the aquifer.
In 1914 and 1919, the Lucinico painter Leopoldo Perco portrays the Belvedere of the Attems Petzenstein estate, which he calls “The Devil’s House”.
It consists of a small squared stone tower, that is four-meter wide on each wall and three-meter tall. The walls are solid and thick.
It also includes a spacious recess, which opens on the street front, and the trenches, excavated parallely to the structure during the Great War.
The Belvedere becomes a defensive place during the occupation of Gorizia.
