Garden
“The Tuileries Garden takes its name from the tile factories that stood where Queen Catherine de Medici had the Tuileries Palace built in 1564, which has since disappeared. The famous king's gardener, André Le Nôtre, gave it from 1664 its current appearance of a French garden. The garden, which separates the Louvre from the Place de la Concorde, is a place for walking and culture for Parisians and tourists where the statues of Maillol rub shoulders with those of Rodin or Giacometti. The two pools are ideal for relaxation. The Orangery Museum in which visitors admire Monet’s works is located southwest of the Tuileries. From March to December, free tours only in French are organized. And for those who love cotton candy, rides and thrills, come to the Fête des Tuileries, from June to August.”

Plaza
“As all the royal squares, the Place de la Concorde knew many different names according to the political upheavals. First called Place Louis XV, it will become a symbol of the French Revolution as many people were guillotined there, including King Louis XVI and Queen Marie-Antoinette. This monumental square is one of the finest example of French classicism in the Age of Enlightenment. In the center, the statue of Louis XV was destroyed and replaced by the current obelisk offered by the Viceroy of Egypt in 1832. Located between the Champs-Elysées, the Tuileries Gardens, the Louvre and the Madeleine, Place de la Concorde and its surroundings are among the most beautiful areas of Paris.”
