Garden Jacques-Boucher garden in Orléans

I'm leaving the noisy De Gaulle square... Well, let's go to the peaceful Jacques-Boucher garden!

It was laid out after the World War II's destructions. It's a reinvented garden from the Middle Ages!

We can find here medieval garden's characteristic elements: terraces, small plot of land with aromatic plants, box-trees, arbour...

Oh, look here! There's a small building, the Colas des Francs' detached house: a Renaissance study where sir Jacques Boucher (duke of Orléans' treasurer in 1425) used to store archives.
