The Lost Gardens of Apollo is one of Second Life’s treasures. It’s also one of its oldest attractions, dating all the way back to 2005. There isn’t much in Second Life that’s been around this long.
It’s a place of seductive beauty, a place for lovers and for lovers of beauty. The sheer complexity of the build is stunning. Covering an entire sim, it contains lush forests, hidden places to relax with a lover, an imposing temple-like structure on the harbor, and a “Bridge to Nowhere” floating high above. Former members of the now-defunct virtual world There.com will feel at home in the floating islands that conjure a feeling of the magical place Saja in that extinct world.
Second Life members can visit by using either of these slurls:

Here are four photos I took on my visit there yesterday. I’ll have more in the future.
