The Tuileries Garden was designed and planted in 1564 for Queen Catherine de Medici on property adjacent to the Louvre Palace in Paris. Modeled on the gardens of her native Florence, Catherine built both a palace as well as the garden on land that had previously housed workshops, known as tuileries, for the production of roof tiles. The Gardens became a public park after the French Revolution, and in the 19th century, a place for relaxation, festivity, and entertainment for the citizens of Paris.
