The castle of Marqueyssac is famous for its beautiful seventeenth- and nineteenth-century gardens.
Marqueyssac's 22-hectare park and XVIIIth century château offer more than 6 kilometers of shaded strolling alleys edged by - 150,000 hand-trimmed boxes -, and adorned with panoramic viewpoints, rockeries, waterfalls and natural sceneries.
It is one of France's most beautiful "Parc à l'italienne".
