  • Lovely gardens leading up to Tour Magne. Very impressive main level with water features and Diana Temple, chilled walk up to the tower in the shade for amazing views over the town. Steep capes up...

  • The gardens are large and beautiful with a Roman ruin , open areas, grassy areas, a wood, a cafe, a large fountain and other water features. It is worth learning a bit about the history before you...

  • A sublime park that climbs the hillside until it meets the tower Magne at the summit. The views, sculptures and Roman architecture around the source are all fantastic. Plenty of places to sit and relax with a picnic or sunbathe. Small children's parks are placed throughout with a miniature carousel by the main entrance. It's well maintained and naturally very green, with a mixture of more exotic plants and trees added for variety. The source is also surrounded by various fountains and water features keeping the air cool and fresh. A must visit for all ages!
  • A great set up of fountains. A lot of hungry carp is present in the water which is eager to eat anything. Near the fountains a roman Temple can be found which is easily accessible. It gives a nice view of structure.
