Located at the end of Champs Elysée, the Place de la Concorde is the largest square in Paris.

The palace has a deep history. Called the square of revolution, it has known many sad events in the French history and was renamed Place de la Concorde as a sign of hope and peace. When you enter the square, you will find a remarkable art piece called The Chevaux De Marly, elegant fountains and eight statues for the main French cities.

The palace is mostly known for holding the 3200 years old Luxor Obelisk originally placed in front of the Luxor temple in Egypt. It’s a precious building transported to Paris after Napoleon Bonaparte campaign in Egypt. The red granite construction is decorated by images telling the story of Napoleon’s trip from Egypt to Paris.

There is a giant ferris wheel at the palace from which you can admire a great view of Paris.
