The château of Bouges is often described as being encased in greenery. This green “case” is largely due to the landscape architects Henri and Achille Duchêne (late 19th - early 20th century). The park and gardens which existed when the château was built were altered and restored to suit Mrs Viguier’s new tastes at the time. She gave them her personal touch when she arrived and introduced a flower garden.
This virtual exhibition has been put together by teams from the Centre des monuments nationaux, with the help of teams from the Château de Bouges, the support of teams from the images unit and coordination by the digital unit.
