Orangerie 2

In the reign of Louis XIV it was decorated with sculptures now kept in the Musée du Louvre. Consisting of six sections of lawn and a circular pool, in the summer it features 1,055 trees in boxes, including palm trees, oleanders, pomegranate trees, eugenias and orange trees that spend the winter inside the building. Some of the orange trees from Portugal, Spain and Italy, and lemon and pomegranate trees are over 200 years old.
