Le jardin de nous deux (Civrieux d'Azergues/ France)

Charles Billy and his wife liked to travel around and visit famous buildings all over Europe. In 1975 Mr Billy retired from his job to decorate the garden around his house.
Over time he constructed replica's of the great buildings he and his wife had seen like the Tower of Pisa, the Arc de Triomphe in Paris, Venetian Palaces and more, using stones from demolished buildings in the area. The constructs are around 3m high. Thus "Le jardin de nous deux/ The garden of the two of us" was created.
Nowadays the site is private and closed for the public.
