Visit the Royal Palace in Caserta
The Royal Palace of Caserta, was requested by the King of Naples Charles de Bourbons in 1752. The king after his visit in the area, enchanted by the beauty of the landscape decided to build a luxurious palace, similar to the one in Versailles, in order to have a respectful headquarter for the capital of its Kingdom, Naples.
The king requested that the project also included the park and the adjacent urban area: the palace would become the symbol of the new Bourbon state showing its power and grandeur but also its efficiency and rationality.
In 1997, together with the Vanvitelli aqueduct and the aqueduct of San Leucio, the Royal Palace was proclaimed World Heritage by UNESCO.
