Author(s): Geneviève  Bresc-Bautier, Emmanuel  Jacquin

€ 9.00 tax included

On the doorstep of the bygone Tuileries palace, the Tuileries Garden is a privileged witness to the eventful history of France and Paris. The green lung of the city center, and a genuine open-air museum, this garden – by turns royal, imperial and republican – has remained an elegant and ever-popular place for a walk to this day. This book is an invitation to discover the haven of green that stretches from the Carrousel du Louvre to the Place de la Concorde.

Learn as you stroll by the countless sculptures that line the pathways of this marvelous garden and take a fascinating journey through four centuries of history.
