Italian Terraced Garden

(This statue is currently part of the exhibition "Neptune sea" in the chateau interior. The garden is easily accessible by symetric gates integrated into retaining walls. An area on the western slope of the garden is axyisymmetric, unlike the simpler version of the garden in the South wing. The chateau marlite terraces can take price in effectively designed irrigation and drainage system as well as vemtilation system.
