Paris Garden Jardin du Palais Royal

The Paris garden Jardin du Palais Royal and the Palais Royal was built by the Cardinal Richelieu, the "Palais-Cardinal" housed two large ponds with fountains, statues, bed of flowers, two alleys and a small wood.
In 1730, the Garden received its first transformation. In 1786, the Duke Philip of Orleans built a room dug in the ground 5m and 3m, in the middle of the Garden.
Under Charles X (1824-1830), the Jardin du Palais-Royal was again changed, it took its actual form.

Le Jardin du Palais Royal is composed of four double rows of lime trees marquise-cut, large flower beds and a central basin. It is also decorated with marble statues (Le Charmeur de Serpent of Adolphe Thabard , et Le Pâtre et la Chèvre of de Paul Lemoyne).
The small cannon-timer who sat in the center of the garden since 1786 was stolen in 1998, he was replaced by a replica in 2011.
