  • Oh mon dieu. Way 2 spooky 4 me. Almost 3 spooky 5 me
  • Lovely little garden surrounding the tower. Was closed when I got there. But beautiful all the same! ;)
  • Sauron no longer lives here... Disappointed
  • A beautiful Jardin located just off rue de Rivoli. This is a great place to stroll, picnic, or sit and read a good book. Don't miss the flowering trees on a sunny spring day, they're spectacular!
  • Nice little park. An interesting monument.
