Vestige Du Palais Des Tuileries In Jardin Des Tuileries

The Palais des Tuileries was once a royal palace constructed for Catherine de Medici and was located in between the Louvre and the gardens, but this first HD photo shows a part of the original architecture saved from destruction, which is referred to as a Vestige du Palais des Tuileries, or in English, Remains of the Tuileries Palace.

LHS Of Vestige Du Palais Des Tuileries

It was a private entrepreneur who purchased the building and sold much of the architectural elements that were still able to be salvaged, which can now be found in numerous places throughout the world, yet fortunately, one small part remains within the Jardin des Tuileries that was specifically designed for the palace, and in this photo you can see a close up showing the top of these remains, which is classed as an historical monument.

Even though the Palais des Tuileries had been a royal residence for centuries and even Napoleon Bonaparte made it his home, unfortunately, it was set on fire in 1871 during the Paris Commune, and burned for approximately three days, yet it took eleven years before a decision was made to completely destroy the former royal palace, much to the horror of many who wanted it to be restored.

Vestige Du Palais Des Tuileries Side View

Now this is a side view of the Vestige du Palais des Tuileries, which shows the grandeur and scale of the facade of the former royal palace, with its ornate columns that was originally on the facade looking over the Jardin des Tuileries, yet incredibly, this was only the first level. of the former royal palace, that many people still want reconstructed.

And here you can see how this part of the remains would have been utilised as a part of the colonnade, with the bottom being on the ground, yet where the columns surrounding the arch starts, would have been at the front of the raised covered walkway, which is like an arcade, and you would have stepped up to this before entering the palace.

Yet this image shows the Vestige du Palais des Tuileries while a tour group were also discovering more about the former royal palace that was designed in the 1500s by the architect Philbert de l'Orme, and you can discover these Remains of the Tuileries Palace in the southern part of the gardens by the Terrasse du Bord de l'Eau, which is on the River Seine side in the 1st Arrondissement of Paris.
