Jardin des Tuileries

In the 13th century, the land of the Jardin des Tuileries represented tile factories. Later Queen Catherine de Medici built the Palais des Tuileries in 1564. André Le Nôtre, the famous gardener of King Louis XIV, re-landscaped the gardens in 1664 to give them their current French formal garden style. Afterward at the western corners of the garden, Napoleon III built two identical buildings: An "orangerie" in 1852, to the southwest, now hosting a museum of Modern Art called the Museé de l'Orangerie, and a Jeu de Paume, in 1861 , in the north-west, hosting a Museum of Contemporary Art, the National Gallery of Jeu de Paume. The garden also includes several statues from Cain, Maïllol, Gasq, Louis Lévèque, among others.
