This is an interesting garden. The statues are very well made and the descriptions are very detailed. The garden is behind the chapel and could easily be missed.

This is a very quiet, calm, moving, thought provoking place. Even if you are not religious it is well worth visiting. The carving at each display is absolutely amazing.
