Overview
More
Three fantasy-like buildings made up of approximately 30 000 recycled glass bottles of various colors and sizes, surrounded by beautiful flower gardens. A haven for nature lovers, recyclers and photographers. The late Edouard Arsenault built the structures in the early 80's, spending the last four years of his life in this amazing project - family-run for over twenty-five years. Featured in "Ripley's Believe It or Not" and "1000 Places to see before you die".

I planned a route for the West side of the island. And this was one of our stops. First of all, my friends were hesidant. But as soon as they started exploring they realise how amazing it was.

What a beautiful, memorable place to visit. No matter when I go to experience this peaceful place, the gardnes are well kept and beautiful, per the time of the year. I strongly reccommend a leisurely walk through the gardens and enjoy the bottle houses themselves....More
