Le Jardin Paradis Sculpture Garden

A private garden of sculptural eccentricities. 

The sculpture garden of local self-taught artist Leopold Truc is full of unusual structures covered in shell mosaic. Truc also designed his own grave at the site, but when he died in 1991 the government required he be buried in a more traditional location.

Today the garden is on private property, not open to the general public.
