  • The Intendant's Garden is located within the grounds of the Hotel des Invalides, right next to the Dome Church, which it brings a vegetal note that is welcome. It dates from the 17th century, at the time of the construction of the Church and is the work of Robert de Cotte, steward of the buildings. Upon arrival, we are greeted by an alley of lime trees and a bronze statue of Vauban, the creative genius of the defensive fortifications of France, who made countless of them between 1667 until his death in 1707, during the reign of Louis XIV. Created in the style of "La Française" with geometric shapes in boxwood and Ifs cut, it is embellished with massive flowers, which give it an air of garden today, less austere than the original French gardens. Moreover, gardeners have a clever pleasure in varying the plantations according to the season, although the base of the boxwood and pruned yew remains the same. This is what I call disruptive diversity, for the pleasure of loyal visitors, of which I am. However, I regret, but it does not change anything, that the central basin is always dry in poor condition. At the end of the garden, you can enjoy the shading that is beneficial as soon as the sun heats up. One can observe a totally indefinable work with a severed head, which makes a lot of chatter!! This monument fountain without water .... which dates from 1998 , symbolizes the word that continues to be audible after death !!! Funny way to symbolize that. It's a bad taste.

  • We know this beautiful garden when we were leaving the Church of the invalids, we passed it towards the Eiffel tower. You can get beautiful pictures of the church when you're in it!
