[Luxus+ Magazine] Paris : Discovering the Luxembourg Garden, named the most beautiful garden in Europe

Located not far from Saint-Germain-des-Prés and the Latin Quarter, the Luxembourg Garden has been named the most beautiful garden in Europe and is on the podium of the most beautiful gardens in the world, in an online ranking based on users’ opinions. This is an opportunity to take you on a tour of one of the most emblematic parks in the capital of Paris.

 

The creation of the garden dates back to the beginning of the 17th century, when Marie de Medicis, widow of King Henry IV, expressed her wish to leave the Louvre. In 1612, Marie de Médicis acquired a large plot of land to build her country palace inspired by the Florentine palaces, with a gigantic garden reminiscent of the Boboli gardens. It was named the Jardin du Luxembourg after the Hôtel du Duc François de Luxembourg on which it was built. Today, the park has retained its origins and its Italian style as a tribute to its founder, the Florentine Marie de Médicis.
