The Hortulus

You will have access to the « Hortulus » through the Museum. It is a very faithful reproduction of a mediaeval garden, with its specific geometrical composition, which reminds the visitor of the so famous gardens “à la Française”.

IIt’s broken down, like centurys ago, into 3 squares, depending of the plants inside:
– The love square: peonies, violets, primulas, lily, and irises.
– The medicinal square: sage, mint, camomile, and verbena.
– The vegetable square: rhubarb, wild thyme, parsley, chives, sorrel, artichoke and lavender.
