HD photo of fountains in the Trocadero Gardens looking towards the Eiffel Tower
The Jardins du Trocadero were first designed by the engineer Jean-Charles Adolphe Alphand back in the 1800s when Baron Haussmann was redeveloping the city, and yet, these gardens in Paris were redesigned again for the 1937 World Fair, and as you can see from this HD photo, they are in a
prominent position with fabulous views of the Eiffel Tower, which is one of the reasons they have become such a popular tourist attraction, especially at dusk when people are waiting for the illuminations and when this image was taken.

Femme and was sculpted by Daniel Bacque, but there is also a matching statue of a man on the opposite side that was produced by a different artist in the same year and they compliment each other, while looking over the Fountains of Warsaw.

Many people have heard about the fabulous views you can capture of the Eiffel Tower from the Palais de Chaillot, and this is a photo we took of the fabulous Jardins du Trocadero Gardens looking towards the famous landmark in Paris while the fountains were going, and as you can no doubt
see, there are larger fountains that can project water up to 12 metres and smaller ones within the main pool that still reach heights of up to 4 metres, which is why there were plenty of tourists also enjoying this wonderful garden.

Even though most people think about the Jardins du Trocadero for their impressive water fountains that have become one of the popular tourist attractions in Paris, on either side there are English styled gardens with a wide variety of different trees including Beech, Chestnut, Oak, etc, like you can see in this image, and they are a
tranquil place to relax or have a picnic, plus there is actually a small articificial river that runs through, although we ran out of time to discover this on our visit.
