Created in 1629 for Cardinal de Richelieu, this garden has witnessed many of the events that have marked the Palais-Royal's history. Redesigned in the 18th Century by landscape gardener Desgots, it was made smaller by Louis-Philippe d'Orléans in order to accommodate buildings and arcades where merchants were to set up their stalls. Later, in the 20th Century, famous writers Colette and Cocteau lived blissfully here, enjoying the greenery. Today, with its statues, bushes, and trees, the garden has become a favorite meeting place where visitors can relax right in the heart of the capital.
The flowers in the garden are awazing, very few people (mostly Parisians)and just a very wonderful place to relax or take pictures of flowers! The backdrop of the great Architectue is a bonus. Just steps from the Louvre.
This was a great place, very enjoyable. I had never been to France before, or even Europe, so this was a very nice chance to see a beautiful place!!
I have to say, I didn't expect as much of this place as the other sites I visited. I honestly wasn't looking forward to visiting this place, but I'm so glad that I went, because it was extremely worth it!
I highly recommend this place as a must-see attraction in Paris.
