HD panoramic photo from Terrasse de l'Orangerie inside Jardin des Tuileries - Page 152
Terrasses were utilised so that the royal families could enjoy their gardens from an elevated position and we took this panoramic photo from the Terrasse de l'Orangerie in the Jardin des Tuileries, as we were looking over the Roseraie sud towards the Bassin Octogonal, which is in the western area of the gardens.

However, to the left of the photograph you can also see the two ramps that are either side of the western entrance to the Tuileries Gardens by the Place de la Concorde, and this area is called the Fer a cheval, which literally means horseshoe, and it was the landscape gardener and architect Andre Le Notre that designed these in this way, so there were different options for people to get up to the terraces, rather than using steps.
