There are a least 4 grottoes, which are cave-like structures decorated with statues and frescoes, and of course some kind of water feature (what is the purpose of a grotto, anyway—I need to research that!). At this garden it is often about getting to the top, so there are lots of inclines and steps, paths that wind and then cross with other paths, ...
