Place Joffre of Paris!

Ok so this one was mentioned briefly in previous posts but have a picture and reminds me of my many parkings here to walk this marvelous spot in the 7éme arrondissement of Paris and Gros-Caillou quartier. Let me tell you a bit more on Place Joffre of Paris!!

The Place Joffre separates the école militaire and the Champ-de-Mars, between Avenue Duquesne and Avenue de La Bourdonnais, on the one hand, and Avenue de Suffren, the carrefour de General-Jacques-Pâris-de- Bollardière and Avenue de la Motte-Picquet, on the other hand,

This square pays homage to Joseph Joffre Marshal of France, winner of the First Battle of the Marne in 1914 , He was Joseph Jacques Césaire Joffre, born January 12, 1852 in Rivesaltes in the Pyrénées-Orientales and died January 3, 1931 in Paris.

In the middle of the square is erected the bronze equestrian statue of Marshal Joffre inaugurated on June 10, 1939, The école militaire, Champ-de-Mars,and the disused Champ de Mars metro station was located there. A vestige of the metro entrance still remains. In 2021, the ephemeral Grand Palais a temporary exhibition hall will be set up there, in place du Mur pour la Paix (wall of peace), which has been there since 2000. For the Paris 2024 Olympic games, judo and wrestling, wheelchair rugby and para-judo will be held here.

I had my choices of parkings here both above ground, the parking Suffren-Joffre at corner of Avenue de Suffren and Place Joffre, one of my favorite parkings in Paris! And the parking Joffre Ecole Militaire at  Place Joffre corner with Avenue Frédéric le Play.
