In 1500, Château Gaillard took the name of the "King's Gardens". For Charles VIII, it was a prestigious setting to show off to his visitors his rare species and his exceptional varieties of citrus.
It is also a place for gracious wandering and amusement modelled on the "Fountain of Youth".
“Only Adam and Eve are missing from this marvellous paradise to make it a new Eden” said Charles VIII of Château Gaillard.
Dom Pacello invented and sculpted vegetation, and created the embroideries that call to mind the four Rivers of Paradise: water, milk, honey, and wine. He embroidered "simples” (laurel, thyme, rosemary, and lavender), coloured using slate dust, terracotta, and crushed tuffeau stone.
