The Villa Borghese Aviary in Rome.

The aviary was built at the start of the 17th century and at one time housed rare birds (such as peacocks, swans and ostriches). The aviary is located in the Villa Borghese Gardens, part of the former private estate of the Borghese Family (and now public park).
Pretty impressive, but I’d love to get a glimpse into that raised aviary dome in the middle…
Let’s go to Rome and check it out!
