Visitors entering the Rose Garden from the Shakespeare Garden find a winding pathway that leads from a spectacular hillside vista to a recently restored 18th-century French stone tempietto housing a statue entitled 'Love, the Captive of Youth', depicting Cupid and his captor, a fair maiden. Appropriately, the tempietto is encircled by a bed of 'Passionate Kisses' roses.
