The National Garden of the Tuileries
Created in the 16th century, the garden of the Tuileries palace was solely reserved for the royal family and its court. Then, in the 17th century, it was opened only for a privileged few. “Honest people” could be seen here amongst the statues that were gradually installed during the Enlightenment. With the French Revolution, attendance became democratized and in 1793 it became the “national garden”: a place where Parisians could get fresh air, as well as a site for celebrations and ceremonies.
