Forestiere Underground Gardens Tour

Categorized as: Nature & Outdoors
Event tags: garden

Description:

The Underground Gardens are the life-long devotion and hobby of Baldassare Forestiere (1879-1946), a Sicilian immigrant who came to America in 1901 to escape the iron rule of his wealthy father and pursue his own dreams. The Gardens are a subterranean complex of patios, grottos, and garden courts interconnecting with passageways that encircle the living quarters of self-taught artist and builder who sought to escape the brutal head of Fresno Summers.
