Panoramic photograph of Jardin du Carrousel inside Jardin des Tuileries looking north west - Page 154

We were standing at the Place du Carrousel looking towards the Arc de Triomphe du Carrousel and further on the Big Wheel at the Place de la Concorde when we took this panoramic photo that also shows the gardens to either side, which were named the Jardin du Carrousel.  You will find that it was this area, which was originally laid out as a courtyard for King Louis XIV, so that he could host an event in the June of 1662, in order to celebrate the birth of his son and heir to the throne.

Panoramic Of Jardin Du Carrousel Jardin Des Tuileries Looking NW

The storyteller Charles Perrault, famous for stories like Mother Goose and Puss in Boots, documented the historic two day event in an illustrated book, where between 10,000 and 15,000 people were seated to watch the spectacle of over 1,000 riders and horses in a tournament known as a Carrousel, which is where the name originates from, although it is spelt Carousel in English.
