Les jardins suspendus de Marqueyssac



Ce jardin remarquable est implanté au sommet d'un éperon rocheux offrant de magnifiques panoramas sur la vallée de la Dordogne. Sa conception originale laisse une grande liberté au promeneur en quête d'évasion contemplative.

Julien de Cerval lui a consacré les trente dernières années de sa vie, à la fin du XIXe siècle, on lui doit l'essentiel des aménagements actuels. Capitaine de la légion romaine des Zouaves pontificaux, il rapporte d'Italie son amour des jardins. Il fait planter à Marqueyssac des dizaines de milliers de buis faisant ainsi de ce lieu une "folie" en termes de jardins.

Cette galerie photographique met à la fois l'accent sur le jardin et le château, elle n'en oublie pas pour autant de révéler des points de vue remarquables sur la vallée de la Dordogne, tels que le site de Marqueyssac permet de les découvrir.

Puissent ces quelques photos vous donner envie de cheminer et de vous émerveiller parmi les buis à Marqueyssac..................
Remerciements à tous ceux qui gèrent et entretiennent ce lieu exceptionnel.

The gardens of Marqueyssac listed as a National Historical Monument offer more than 6 kilometers of shaded pathes, edged with 150 000 hand-pruned boxwoods aged over hundred years. After extensive restoration work, Marqueyssac was opened to the public in March 1997. Today, it is the most visited garden in Périgord. The park, designed for walking, is situated on a spur and overlooks the entire Dordogne Valley with its chalky cliffs. It reveals the most spectacular panoramic view possible of Périgord.
The paths are organised into three circuits that lead to the Belvedere (le Belvédère - t), 800 meters from the chateau. This belvedere is a fabulous balcony, 192 meters high and 130 meters above the river, which unveils an exceptional panoramic view of the Dordogne valley.

Planted relentlessly, during the XIXth century, boxwoods constitute the main theme of the walks. They are set-off by an arrangement showing great imagination and full of movement, at the expense of symmetry and regularity.
Its layout with its sinuous paths, the roundness and rolling aspect of the boxwood give Marqueyssac softness and romanticism, contributing to the harmony that the gardens have with the hills in the landscape of the Dordogne Valley.
