Le jardin des Tuileries

Le jardin des Tuileries

Le Jardin des Tuileries is one of the most popular public gardens in Paris, situated in the centre of the French capital between Place de la Concorde and the Louvre. Within walking distance from all the major city attractions but still slightly removed from the hustle and bustle of the centre, it's a favourite stop for tourists on sightseeing tours. The garden is relatively small but richly decorated, with sculptures which are of great interest to many visitors for both their historical and artistic importance. The impressive collection features sculptures crafted by such prominent names as Rodin, Coysevox, Giacometti, Jean Dubuffet and many others. The oldest works date back to the 18th Century and are located in the Place de la Concorde section of the park.
