It’s a popular location to visit to grab a few minutes peace and quiet, to contemplate the views or to have a picnic lunch on one of the many benches.
It is planted in terraces with rows of trees which gives it a sense of orderliness and calm.
It was designed in 1790, with a courtyard, a parterre, a walled garden, fountains, and an orangery.
