☆ Trocadéro ☆
The “Troca”, with its privileged viewpoint of the Eiffel Tower on the opposite bank of the Seine, is a fascinating area in itself..
Between the curved wings of the vast Palais de Chaillot – emblem of the 1930s – are gently sloping terraces and gardens, bordered by century-old Caucasian wingnut and hazel trees, and dotted with gilded bronze statues..
Skaters and rollerbladers weave alongside the fountains beneath the gaze of Apollo and Hercules, sculpted on the pediment of the pavilions..
The 20 water canons in the grand bassin eject 8,240 m3 of water per hour forming 56 sprays of water, which finish in cascades at the bottom of the hill..
Place du Trocadéro (16th).
