VALDSTEJN LOGGIA

VALDSTEJN LOGGIA - Jičín - Sedličky 4, 506 01

Albrecht of Valdstejn established his prestigious suburban villa, now the Loggia and the adjacent Libosad park, at the foot of Zebin hill. The selected location enabled the garden to be equipped with fountains and water to be drawn to fill large pools. The complex was never finished. However, the Loggia’s terrace is the place where five landscape axes meet, the ends of which point to the sunsets and sunrises on the equinoxes and solstices. The stage of the Duke’s grand courtly feasts should probably also have been the refuge for this great character, whose life was governed by the horoscope and astrology.
