Place de la Concorde in Paris

Well this is the most famous square in Paris.  It started out named “Place Louis XV” in 1763. Later named “Place de la Révolution”  during the period of terror in the French revolution, and finally took the name of the  “Place de la Concorde” in  1795, to mark the reconciliation of a Nation. Again , it was re-named  “Place louis XV” in 1814, and further  “Place Louis XVI” in 1826.  It was not until the reign of king  Louis-Philippe in 1830, that it takes the current name for good of the  “Place de la Concorde”. Concord or harmony of a nation.

The Paris tourist office tells you some here in English: http://en.parisinfo.com/transport/90907/Place-de-la-Concorde

All roads lead you here, I used to work for many years not far close,,,, and use the metro concorde on bad weather when not walking by it to work. sublime! Public transport passing by here or close are bus lines 17, 18, 20, 21, 22, 24, 26, 27, and 28. Metro stations  Concorde- Line 1 | station Balard -Line 8 | station Porte de la Chapelle / Mairie d’Issy – Line 12.
