Former palace formerly located in the 1st district of Paris, the palace of Tuileries was built in the second half of the 16th century on the orders of Catherine de Medici. Expanded over the years, the building was the royal residence of Henry IV, Louis XIV, Louis XV, Louis XVI, Louis XVIII, Charles X and Louis-Philippe. He was also imperial residence under Napoleon I and Napoleon III.
The palace of the Tuileries was completely destroyed in May 1871 following a fire aroused by three communards, Jules-Henri-Marius Bergeret, Victor Bénot and Etienne Boudin. The few remaining ruins were slaughtered at the end of the 19th century.
Some remains may still be visible in different places, such as in the square Georges-Cain in the 3rd arrondissement, or under the Arc de Triomphe Carrousel du Louvre with very beautiful statues of Philippe de Buyster.
To realize its original appearance, it is possible to discover a copy on a smaller scale in the courtyard of 4 rue du Faubourg-Montmartre. The garden is always open to the public.
