HD photograph from Fer a Cheval inside Jardin des Tuileries looking south west - Page 164
We were looking at the area of the Tuileries Gardens called the Fer a Cheval, which in English translates to Horseshoe, and this relates to the two ramps located on either side of the western entrance to the gardens that are in the shape of a horseshoe and were constructed in the 1600s as part of the designs by the landscape architect Andre Le Notre.

You can also see two large statue groups, with the one closest being called La Seine et la Marne, and these were originally sculpted for the Chateau de Marly yet placed within the Jardin des Tuileries in the early 1700s, although these are now copies as the originals are held within the Musee du Louvre for future preservation.
