On the South side of the church of Notre Dame in Marmande is a beautiful cloister.

Decorating the cloister is a lovely formal garden with partererres and topiaries in box and yew. The patterned parterres are filled with different plants adding texture and some colour to the gardens. The garden is very restful and well worth a visit during a shopping trip to Marmande.

The cloister gardens were created in the cloister in the 1950s. The design was inspired by the cloister gardens of the Chateau de Langeais in the Loire Valley. The design includes lime trees, hornbeam trees, tulip trees and box hedgeing trimmed into symmetrical shapes and the spaces inside the topiary shapes are filled with displays of annual flowers that are changed twice each year.

There is also a formal pond, a statue and a number of stone benches.
