The cascade is the prominent feature of the garden with several communicating tunnels arranged in throne.
Located by the seaside, this small garden is well an example of the sophisticated social life of the eighteenth century. The cascade is the prominent feature of the garden with several communicating tunnels arranged in throne and crowned by an octogonal pavilion, at mid-plane a tank from where part of the water fall into the pond that boasts a sculptural set of the authorship of Machado de Castro.
The statues represent a mythological scene of Goddess Diana bathing by the grove where her beloved shepherd Endymion slept an eternal sleep. From those statues spout several water effects lending a greater movement to the characters of this gigantic Wagnerian stage.
Visiting the Caxias Royal Estate is having the opportunity to visit a garden of enormous scenic, architectural and sculptural value.
