What people are saying:

The Place de la Concorde is located in the center of Paris, north bank of the Seine River, the most famous square in France, built by King Louis XV in the 18th century. The building was originally to show the world his supreme royal power, named "Louis XV Square." During the Revolution, it was called the "revolution square", which was used by the French people as a stage to show the destruction of the king's power. It was renamed the "Concorde square" in 1795 and renovated in 1840, and this scale was formed. The square is octagonal, with an obelisk in the center, which was given to Charles V by the Egyptian governor. The obelisk is carved out of whole pieces of pink granite engraved with Egyptian hieroglyphs, in praise of the achievements of the Pharaohs of Egypt. The square is surrounded by 8 statues that symbolize the 8 big cities of France
