The gardens of Marqueyssac

Picture of Marqueyssac gardens

Overhanging the Dordogne valley, the hanging gardens of Marqueyssac cling to an imposing rocky outcrop. In the nineteenth century, Julien de Serval realized the first gardens of pleasure by planting some 150,000 feet of box. After buying them in the mid-1990s, Kléber Rossillon has made this romantic site too long neglected a magnificent area open to the public.
