Medieval Gardens at the Feudal Castle in Fressin, France

The three medieval gardens dating back to the 15th century within the ruins of the Feudal Castle in Fressin are the Garden of Eden, the Garden of Evil and the Garden of Good.

A three-dimensional horoscope features in the Jardin du Eden (Garden of Eden). According to the sign this garden symbolizes paradise with white pebbles as a sign of purity, a fountain symbolizing life and seven circles of vegetation. This zodiac planting snuck in because astrology was one of the primary beliefs in the Middle Ages.
