Obelisk Grove

Accueil Obelisk Grove

Presentation

Of the Festins Hall Grove laid out by Le Nôtre between 1671 and 1674, only the general layout remains. It was completely redesigned by Jules Hardouin-Mansart in 1705-1706. The architect dug a vast two-level rectangular basin from which a multitude of jets spout out, forming a liquid obelisk. The upper basin empties into the lower basin via four staircases.
