Information about Parc des Buttes-Chaumont

Buttes-Chaumont is the steepest and, aside of Tuileries and Villette, largest park in Paris. Its landscape is a blend of English and Chinese style, and its jagged pattern contrasts with mathematically symmetrical formal "à-la-française" gardens. The most observant will notice overlapping influences from Fragonard and, especially, Hubert Robert, the man who painted Rome's gardens. A rocky island in the middle of this park's well-known lake conceals a romantic shrine to Sybille, exactly where an open quarry once stood, and a cave in an underground quarry.
