Villa Caprile

This post is also available in: Italiano (Italian)

Villa Caprile, standing on the hills of Pesaro Urbino, dates back to 1640: it was built by the Marquis Giovanni Mosca as a leisure resort; in fact, he created water games designed to catch visitors off guard, with sudden splashes and jets, thus providing some thrilling entertainment. Subsequently, the marquis Carlo Mosca Barzi and his son Francesco made other changes, including the construction of a chapel.
In 1876, Villa Caprile became a valuable school of agriculture; sold to the local Provincial Administration in 1925, it is now home to the “Antonio Cecchi” Agricultural Technical Institute.
The Second World War damaged the Villa – restoration works started in 1946.

The garden, open to the public, never fails to amaze young and old visitors with its XVIII century water games. During the summer season, the open-air theatre hosts several cultural events.


The gardens are structured on three terraces connected by stone stairs. On the first terrace, the closest to the Villa, there is the Italian garden, with a large octagonal pool in the centre, water features in working order, flower beds, and citrus fruits. The following terrace houses the pomarium, with fruit trees. The last terrace is dedicated to aromatic plants.
