Surrounding the beautiful 17th century Luxembourg Palace, the Luxembourg Gardens cover 25 hectares on the Left Bank of the city. Both the gardens and palace were constructed for French queen Marie de Medicis in the years 1615-1627. The architect, Salomon de Brosse, based the design on a Florentine palace to reflect Marie's home.
