The place de la Concorde is located between the Champs Elysees and the Jardin des Tuileries. The square of about eight hectare has besides the Egyptian obelisk also two fountains and eight statues, representing the French cities.

Standing with your back to the Seine you see two manor houses, the Hotel de la Marine and Hotel de Crillon. From here you can also look into the Rue Royale and see the Eglise de la Madeleine, which looks like a Greek temple.
