Terrasson-Lavilledieu is a commune in the Dordogne department in the Nouvelle-Aquitaine region in France. Terrasson-Lavilledieu is about 150 kilometers east of Bordeaux in southwestern France.

With the twelve enigmatic cluzeaux, the ancient city offers a unique wealth. The place goes back to the foundation of a monastery in the 6th century. In the 12th century, a stone bridge was built over the Vézère by Benedictine monks. The bridge has been repaired several times and has survived the centuries. Today it is the symbol of Terrasson-Lavilledieu.

The Gardens of the Imagination (Les Jardins de l’Imaginaire) – classified as a remarkable garden by the French Ministry of Culture – are situated in Terrasson. It was designed in 1996 by landscape architect Kathryn Gustafson to present thirteen tableaux of the myths and legends of the history of gardens. It uses simple natural elements; trees, flowers, water and stone to suggest the passage of mankind from nature to agriculture to the city. It uses a symbolic sacred wood, a rose garden, topiary art, and fountains to tell the story.

Here you can find the complete Overview of all Theme Weeks.
