Vaux le Vicomte - gardens

After touring the chateau we wandered through the gardens. There was great variety of styles including some extremely patterned gardens, multiple pools with fountains (mostly not operational at the time), statuary, and groves of carefully parallel rows of trees. I read in Wikipedia that as many as 16,000 people were employed to build the gardens.
