Jardin Massey, Tarbes, Midi-Pyrenees, France
If it’s a good place to live in Tarbes, it’s at Jardin Massey! Haven of peace and undeniable jewel of the city, its historic vocation of main oxygen lung for city dwellers has never been denied.
This famous Massey Garden is like no other: a nursery with its many varieties, its cactus exhibition greenhouse, its majestic alleys, its 40 meters Moorish style tower, its flowers that perfume the landscape will delight fans. The water running through the park, the animals, the museum of hussars, the carriage for a walk, a cloister with its 40 arcades, reserve other surprises …
In any season: animation and serenity! This wonder, we owe to the know-how and the inspiration of its principal instigator, the famous Placide Massey, intendant of the Queen Hortense under the Empire in 1808, then manager of the plantations under Louis-Philippe and Director of the vegetable garden of Versailles.
