Frankreich2007 104Renaissance garden at Chateau Villandry, Valley of Loire / France

If you once have the chance to visit France do not forget to visit the famous valley of the Loire with its diverse castles from past times for instance Villandry castle where you will find a big renaissance garden. In a modern sense renaissance means to be born again every day like a butterfly escaping the cocoon for lifting off to the first flight in the sky. Here at Villandry the constructor is imitating nature because the geometrical structures look more like gigantic snow crystals in their diverse shapes. You can dive into these structures like in an ocean of mathematical symbols which are altogether a great labyrinth. So take care that you do not get lost in these mazes when you pay too much attention to all the nice plants and simply just miss the way to the next exit.
