The Grottos of Boboli Gardens.

Making our way out of Boboli Gardens, we stopped at one of the two amazing grottos that the garden contains. This one which dates from the 1500's was home to the original the Prisoners of Micelangelo and now contains replicas.

Grottos are basically caves that have been turned into art in some way or another. This is a view of the main interior which shows the replica's of Micelangelo's Prisoners struggling to release themselves from the stone.

If you peer into the depths, you can see that the statues extend well back into the cave.
