Tarot Garden: artistic park in Capalbio created by Niki de Saint Phalle.
The Tarot Garden is an artistic park composed by monumental sculptural (12/15 metres high) inspired at the Tarots. Niki de Saint Phalle has created this garden on the hill of Garavicchio near Capalbio in Tuscany.

The garden was opened to public in 1998 after 19 years from its inception, and Niki continues to work on it. It could be said that the Tarot Garden is never completed.
