The Temple of Health

Tucked away behind the Secret Garden, the Temple of Health was built to celebrate the recovery of King Louis III from one of his many bouts of insanity.

The Roundel

The Roundel was originally a statue, but was converted to a water feature in 2012. The benches here are perfect to rest and reflect.
