What is the Estate
The complex of La Venaria Reale is a unique environmental and architectural continuum of extraordinary charm, a boundless, varied, spectacular estate where the visitor is inevitably enveloped by magical atmospheres in a context of cultural attractions and multiple leisure pursuits: performances, events, concerts and outstanding exhibitions alternate with entertainment, direct, intimate contact with nature, relaxation, sporting pastimes and cultural food and wine events.
Venaria Reale is the old town centre or “Borgo”, a treasure trove of historical events and happenings; it is the imposing baroque Reggia, the Palace which, with its vast Gardens, is one of the most significant examples of the magnificent architecture and art of the 17th and 18th century; it is the Park of La Mandria, one of the largest environmental havens in Europe where numerous species of wild and domestic animals live in complete freedom and where the remarkable historical and architectural heritage is preserved; and it also the International Riding Centre.
The new splendor and superb quality of the restored Reggia, the immensity and beauty of the Gardens and the natural area of the Park allow visitors to spend their time enjoying new sensations and different experiences, discovering a modern conception of “taste”, leisure” and the “art of living” that is within everyone’s reach.
The Reggia of Venaria Reale and the Royal Residence of La Mandria have been declared World Heritage Sites by UNESCO.
