The Lost Gardens of Heligan – Italian Garden
The Italian Garden was the first major restoration project at Heligan. Previously known as ‘The Suntrap’ it was specifically designed to catch the mid-day sun. The original features and plants have been restored to their original condition. It was known from archive photographs that there was a statue of a boy with a dolphin at the centre of the pond, but when the garden was discovered this was nowhere to be found.
