Caption: Villa Angiana, Villa Angiana, commonly known as the Park at Enghien (ca. 1685). On this title page, the arms of Enghien's owner, the Duke of Aremberg, are flanked by classical gods including Apollo and his sister Artemis, the goddess of hunting, while another goddess, wearing the wings of Hermes, the messenger, holds a garden plan. There is a satyr and a river god on the other side and beneath them a dedication to the Duke. Below there is a detailed plan of the park. The plan identifies the main features of the garden and shows how they fitted into the wider landscape. The Duke's palace (Chateau) looks out over the park at the bottom, with the old walled town (ville) to its right and the suburbs (fauxbourg) and cemetery on the other side. Image taken
