The Public Garden Of Fougères Fougères - Ille-et-Vilaine (35) - Brittany - France

Right next to Saint Leonard church, the public garden offers a remarkable view of the castle, Saint Sulpice church and the surrounding countryside. The descent to the medieval parts of the town, and so to the castle and the site of the ”Rocher coupé” with its turquoise waters, is punctuated by a band stand, a 17th century water basin and a collection of ferns.
Our walk takes us next to the garden of the Val Nançon. Right under the ramparts, this mosaic garden is an invitation to travel. Bamboos and kitchen gardens grow next to the ”Oeuvre à la vie”, a contemporary work of art elaborated with children.
