Let’s talk more about the French Garden
This Eden, shaped like a boat deck, is the largest of the 9.
A large canal runs along this garden. This pond hosts a musical show with water games. In summer, the center of the water ballet is a pond full of water lilies and lotuses. Fairytale show!
Renaissance cardinal vases adorn the park. As you walk, listen to the gentle sound of the waterfall pouring into the large pool.
At the end of the garden you will find the Temple of Love overlooking the waterfall, photo opportunities are guaranteed.
