Tuscany (Lucca) - Villa Torrigiani di Camigliano (XVII century)
Among the famous Lucchese Villas is Villa Torriggiani di Camigliano built in the 16th and 17th century and Villa Mansi from the same period, in Sacramingo. Both have lovely facades, somptuous halls and splendid gardens with small lakes. Also famous is Palazzo Pfanner, formerly known as Palazzo Contorni, built in 1667 almost in the center of town; its  magnificent garden contains an octogonal basin surrounded by Baroque statues of the gods and goddesses of ancient Roman mythology.
