The Garden Landscape Guide

Jardin du Palais Royal

The palace was built in 1629 for Cardinal Richelieu by Jacques Lemercier and was originally known as Palais Cardinal. Richelieu bequeathed the palace to the crown. In the late eighteenth century, the garden was enclosed and made smaller when the palace was enlarged. The courtyard (Cour d'Honneur) is surrounded by colonnades and contains a large contemporary sculpture by Daniel Buren. The garden has avenues of lime trees and a central fountain.

    I appreciate this garden because it is not too big and cloistered. Beautiful flowers. Located in a beautiful but cold area of Paris, it makes you feel comfortable. It must be very agreable to read on one of the benches.
    This garden has been used in many movies and videoclips.
