Mediterranean faces

Presented by the city of Grasse

The Mediterranean basin shows broad range of landscapes, from the sea to the mountains and the countryside.

Grasse, inscribed since the end of 2018 on UNESCO's list of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity for its perfume know-how, is positioned as a central area, located between sea and mountains.

Central territory mainly composed of ancient villages and agricultural areas.

This garden, entitled "Mediterranean Faces" is a representation of the geographical location of Grasse and will be visible at the Jardins des Plantes opposite Villa Jean-Honoré Fragonard.

It is composed of 3 parts:

  • The first represents the seafront with "exotic" plants.
  • The second is a countryside landscape identical to Grasse's landscapes.
  • The third is inspired by the nearby mountains north of Grasse.
