The Louvre Estate includes both the Carrousel and Tuileries gardens. Both places of historical interest and places for strolling, they are animated according to the seasons and are a setting for activities proposed for the whole family. The Tuileries Gardens were created during the Renaissance by Catherine de Medici. They were then completely redesigned from 1664 onwards by André Le Nôtre, Louis XIV's landscape gardener. From the 18th century, the gardens were decorated with statues and vases. In the groves, there are also numerous sculptures on loan from modern and contemporary art museums.
