Parco della Favorita

This immense park was originally a game reserve for Ferdinand IV of Bourbon, who was expelled from Naples by Napoleon's troops. The king had the Palazzina Cinese built there for his wife, Queen Maria Carolina. The strange "little Chinese Palace" has curious architecture and an exotic decor.
