The Place de la Concorde is one of the major open squares in Paris, France. Measuring 8.64 hectares of land, it is the biggest square in the French capital. It is found in the city's eighth enclosure, at the eastern end of the Champs-Elysees. The focal zone of the Place is involved by a goliath Egyptian pillar enhanced with scriptures and designs taking up the rule of the pharaoh Ramesses II. It is one of the two among the ones the Egyptian government gave to the French in the nineteenth century. The other one stayed in Egypt, too troublesome and overwhelming to move to France with the technology around then. In the 1990s, President Francois Mitterrand gave the second monolith again to the Egyptians. The two wellsprings in the Place de la Concorde have been the most celebrated around the world throughout the time of Louis-Philippe, and came to symbolize the wellsprings in Paris. They were outlined by Jacques Ignace Hittorff. Place De La Concorde Paris tourist attraction added in 3 Days In Paris Itinerary.

  • I’m your way to louvre museum you will find this amazing place. Is one of the major public squares in Paris, France. Measuring 8.64 hectares (21.3 acres) in area, it is the largest square in the French capital.

  • Be careful! this is a bad area a lot of pocket picker around here try to rip your bag and jacket. If you plan visited here then you will see 4 to 5 young females and males hands with clip boards or papers try to talk to you. Please you must stop them immediately and call police. my suggestion is save police phone number in your phone with right area code as NO police around there. The city in a very bad management environment. I hope France local residents report this problems ASAP to protect visitors from lose and get hurt by these pocket pickers. Thanks

  • A big open square with 2 beautiful fountains and a beautiful view on the Parisian architecture. From here you can also go in any direction, leading to many cool places such as the Louvre or les invalides

  • great place to relax and enjoy the view. It is an open field with roads around. nearby pond with the comfortable chairs is a nice place for a 5 min nap and re-energize

  • Great place to take in the scenery. It autumn the colours of the trees are fantastic. It's also a good place to take photos with the Eiffel Tower poking out in the background.
