Along the road taken by the Lords of Rouergue, in a valley near Rodez, stands the splendid Chateau du Colombier and its gardens. Here you will find the history of animals, simple gardens, the stories of men and their lives from today and yesterday.

Sheltered beneath the walls of the chateau, the medieval garden, once a place of courtly romance, is filled with the perfumes of flowers and herbs that have been used since ancient times.

This delightful setting has been the family seat of the Counts of La Panouse for thirty generations. 

The Garden of Eden contains over 350 species of plants and shrubs cultivated in Europe between 800 and 1440, which today are displayed across five separate gardens; it's a living history of gardens from the time of Charlemagne to the 15th century.
