Lonely Planet review

These beautiful, terraced gardens on the steep southern slopes below the castle date from the 17th and 18th centuries, when they were created for the owners of the adjoining palaces. They were restored in the 1990s and contain a Renaissance loggia with frescoes of Pompeii and a baroque portal with sundial that cleverly catches the sunlight reflected off the water in a triton fountain.

There are two entrances: one on Valdštejnská street next to the Palffy Palace Restaurant, and one at the top of the hill in the Garden on the Ramparts at Prague Castle.
