Trocadero Square in Paris

The Trocadero Square It is, at least for me, one of the most beautiful places in Paris since it is right in front of the Eiffel Tower and has on one side the River Seine and on the other the Chaillot Palace, a landscape full of magic. It is a very famous place in France not only for the privileged views but also for the immense beauty of the gardens it has and which make it, as a whole, one of the most impressive views of the city.

The great emblem of the Plaza del Trocadero is the Warsaw fountain, built by Roger Henri Expert and that has a lot of cascading ponds that give life to a kind of gigantic rectangular shaped pool and where several canyons squirt water from the ends. One of the great attractions of the city, especially when night falls and several cannons of light make the water the protagonist of an incredible sight to see that you cannot miss.

You will always see a lot of tourists in this square immortalizing every corner with their photo camera. It also has several sculptures from the 1930s, such as "La mujer de Baque" or "El hombre de Traverse", both of which are also the subject of multiple photographs every day. In the Trocadero Gardens You can spend a whole day relaxing taking a walk or having a drink.

The Palacio de Chaillot is located on the top of the hill that bears his name and was built in 1937. It houses a few museums, so if you are going to be in the Trocadero Square, stop by to see the Museum of Man, the Navy Museum, the Henri Langlois Film Museum and the Museum of French Monuments, a very interesting place where you have a small-scale compilation of the most important monuments that are distributed throughout the country.
