  Place de la Concorde
by pili

Favorite thing: Between the Champs Elysées and the Tuileries Gardens, there lies the Place de la Concorde.-
This square was the site of major events including the executions of Louis XVI, Marie Antoinette, Charlotte Corday, Danton and Robespierre.
In 1836 the obelisk of Luxor, given to Louis Philipee by Mohamed Ali of Egypt, was placed in the center of the place.-
From this square you can enjoy beautiful views of the Champs Elisee and the arch of triumph.-

Esta plaza se ubica entre los Jardines de las Tullerías y los Campos Eliseos. Fue el centro de los mayores eventos historicos de Paris, tales como las ejecuciones de Luis XVI, María Antonieta, Danton y Robespierre, entre tantos otros.
En 1836 fue emplazado en el centro de la misma el obelisco Luxor, de 3.200 años de antiguedad.-
Desde esta plaza pueden observarse increibles vistas de los Campos Eliseos y del Arco de Triunfo.-
