The Orangerie Grotto

‘History set in stone’

Palazzo Parisio’s Orangery and Grotto was built in 1733 by Grand Master de Vilhena. Originally it would have housed oranges and lemons grown for the house, but now showcases lush ferns, lilies and hothouse plants. It also features a 17th century rustic rocky stone grotto, which conceals an extremely intricate watering system for the grounds.
