Let's Dog Walk & Spend Time Together
In Protected content , Marie de Médicis wanted to get away from the turmoil of the court then installed in the Louvre and decided to build a palace surrounded by a sumptuous garden. The Luxembourg garden will undergo many modifications, until the major works of Haussmann at the end of the Second Empire which will give it its current layout. The palace and the garden are now the property of the Senate.
In Protected content , an orangery was built in the garden, then gradually added an orchard, greenhouses, a rose garden and an apiary still used today and accessible to visitors (the greenhouses are only open during the days of the heritage). The garden is divided into a French-style and an English-style part, separated by a forest and a large octagonal pond. One hundred and six statues and two sculpted fountains, the Medici Fountain and the Monument to Eugène Delacroix by Jules Dalou, are arranged in the park.
On the entertainment side, you can practice chess, bridge, tennis, admire the works regularly exhibited on the outdoor railings, or simply sit on a chair and enjoy a moment ''in the green''.
