  • This place is beautiful. The gardens, the grounds, the canals the statues, all of it. It is just a great place to take sometime and walk around and enjoy the scenery.  more »
  • The garden consists of a lower and flat part with the canals, ponds, statues and temple. The second part is the more challenging climb to the tower. But what goes up must eventually come down... Green...  more »

  • Really nice gardens to walk through on the way to Tour Magne. Hilly and busy but still very quiet because of all the tree cover. Lots of Roman ruins to see in it too!
  • Nice gardens for a walk. It has quite a few sculptures. On the weekend, kids can ride poneys or bikes.
  • Great garden separated in 4 gardens, with a neat view from the tower. Cost is €6 per adult. Great alternative to the Duke's castle visit.
  • Fantastic! Worth the trip to Nimes.
  • Gorgeous park with a lot of Pokémon players.
