PLACE ROYALE DU PEYROU

Discover a royal location !


FOR HISTORY BUFFS


From the old threshing area to the royal square 

The Peyrou... its vast pedestrian avenues, its prized lawns, its shaded side roads and more... The Peyrou, a royal location!
The history of this former threshing area began in the 17th century when a space was sought in which to honour the king. Between the Arc de Triomphe and the equestrian statue, it would take nearly a century to complete.

The project would finally be concluded with the construction of the “water temple” and the Saint-Clément Aqueduct with its 236 arches.
The tour comes to an end with a view of the square from the terrace atop the Arc de Triomphe.
