Children love the Luxembourg gardens for their wooden horses, their model yachts to push along with a cane on the ornamental pond, for their refreshment kiosks, puppet theatre, ponies, etc..

Others too, appreciate the setting: artists with their easels, chess players, daydreamers, students with their notepads, computers…

The wrought-iron chairs are perfect for a delightful nap below the Dames de France which form a circle of statues..

What would Marie de Médicis think of the success of the palace and garden commissioned by her??

At the time, the widow of Henri IV had sought to recapture a little of her native Florence..

The Fontaine Médicis with all its niches and nymphs is all that remains of the Italianate grotto that she had built in 1630..

The palace has become the seat for the Sénat (the upper house of the French parliament)..

☆ Jardin and musée du Luxembourg ☆

It oversees the running of the garden and the museum, which stages exhibitions on modern art and the Renaissance, of course, in memory of the Florentine queen..

    Martinha, esse lugar é lindo, cherrié. Tem uma botique de queijos aí pertinho, que eu não me lembro o nome ideal para umas comprinhas pré piquenique nestes jardins. Lindas fotos! Melhorei até o meu mal humor matinal ao vê-las e relembrar desse lugar!Boa sexta!
