About Forestiere Underground Gardens


Forestiere Underground Gardens is a subterranean journey to the Mediterranean right in the heart of Fresno. During the early 1900’s, over a 40 year period, Baldassare Forestiere sculpted a fantastic underground retreat for himself stretching out over 10 acres but deep underground.

You will find an amazing labyrinth of rooms, passageways, patios and courtyards still fully intact today with complimenting plantings of fruit bearing trees and vines, many of them grafted to grow more than one kind of fruit. Some were actually planted by Baldassare himself. There is an abundance of stonework and building techniques patterned after the ancient catacombs as well as a multilevel aquarium and so much more at this state registered landmark.
