La Cité des Immortels
the Chinese garden
In Chinese decorative art the portrayal of water and clouds in pebbles is widely used. The entire visit should preferably be undertaken barefoot so that you can notice the therapeutic and very stimulating effect. This optimum effect is based on the Path of Healing, which you can try afterwards.
The white wall in front of you, framed by red robin, opens through a circular passageway onto a lush garden of camellias, azaleas, trumpet trees and maples. It is a unique experience to remain still at this central image and to allow the harmony of this image to penetrate you.
When you leave the circle you may be slightly confused and according to a Chinese principle, you never go where your gaze is directed. Indeed, the field of flowers are to the left of the path heading towards the first pavilion.
