Jardin des Tuileries

The Jardin des Tuileries, aka, the Tuileries Garden is a great civic garden located between the Louvre and the Place de la Concorde in the 1st arrondissement of Paris. Created by Catherine de’ Medici as the garden of the Tuileries Palace in 1564, it was eventually opened to the public in 1667 and became a public park after the French Revolution. From the 19th century moving forward, the Tuileries is a place where Parisians celebrate, meet, stroll and relax.  I spent the afternoon there recently.
