Place de la Concorde

Situated slightly off dead city center (that position belongs to the Notre Dame cathedral), Place de la Concorde is the largest square in Paris (occupying the area of almost 22 acres). It is surrounded by a bewildering array of magnificent monuments and architectural marvels, as well as the famous Champs-Élysées boulevard, Tuileries Gardens, Pont de la Concorde, Rue de Rivoli, Rue Royale, etc. When you visit this gigantic octagonal square, you’ll immediately know that you’re in the midst of some of the most significant historic and architectural spots in the French capital.
