Jardin des Tuileries - Jardin des Tuileries information and pictures
Tuileries Gardens (Jardin des Tuileries)
is like the English Garden
. It used to be a royal garden of the old Tuileries Palace (Palais des Tuileries)
, but was opened to the public in the 16th century.
Jardin des Tuileries are located right next to Place de la Concorde
. The gardens were created in the 17th century by the royal landscaper and gardener to Louis XIV, Andre Le Notre. He very successfully combined the traditional Italian garden style with the French taste of leafy sculptures made out of trees and bushes. The designs are very complicated and geometrical and create a sense of splendor and brilliance. Andre Le Notre also created the Versailles gardens.
Jardin des Tuileries features sculptures, fountains, two large basins and two museums - the Galerie Nationale du Jeu de Paume
and the Musée de l'Orangerie
. Claude Monet's famous “water lilies” are on display in the Musée de l'Orangerie.
