Created in 1629 for Cardinal de Richelieu, this garden has witnessed many of the events that have marked the Palais-Royal's history. Redesigned in the 18th Century by landscape gardener Desgots, it was made smaller by Louis-Philippe d'Orléans in order to accommodate buildings and arcades where merchants were to set up their stalls. Later, in the 20th Century, famous writers Colette and Cocteau lived here, enjoying the greenery. Today, with its statues, bushes and trees, the garden has become a favorite meeting place where visitors can relax right in the heart of the capital.
