Place de la Concorde

Paris, France

The major highlight of the Square is the legendary Obelisk (23 meters and 250 tons) shipped from Egypt in 1833. It replaced another local darling – the guillotine. It was also quite big – there, amid laughter and chewing of croissants, Louis XV was beheaded. Later, sanity prevailed and the place was renamed into Concorde.
