Les jardins de la Berbie
Gardens of the Berbie Palace
[Translation by Google Translate (with modifications):
Between 1687 and 1703, Hyacinthe Serrori first archbishop of Albi, has landscaped a place in the old low court of the Berbie and transforms the wall into a promenade. Berbie thus loses its defensive side and palace life moved towards the bank of the Tarn, in accordance with the taste for nature and the picturesque which developed at that time. The finely carved boxwood that make up the classical garden draw embroidery plant which are decorated colorful plants.]
