The reservoir itself is immersed in the lush greenery of tropical plants, setting up a feeling of peace of mind to the fullest unity with nature. The water in the pool is crystal clear and transparent. The pond is divided into two zones - deep and shallow. Its entire bottom is littered with antique marble columns that fell here after an earthquake, which used to be part of the Roman baths.
