The castle's former kitchen patch is now a walled garden planted in the style of those of the Middle Ages. Hedges and fences form different gardens which depict an amazing maze of plants that invites the visitor to explore the theme of the five senses: taste (and texture), colour, sight and smell; in the centre is an aviary, symbolising hearing, home to pheasants and doves. Pretty view of the castle from the small cloister of hornbeams and medicinal plants.
