The Place de la Concorde was designed in 1755. It is the largest square in Paris, and is situated at the eastern end of the Champs Elysées. There are two beautiful buildings on the Place de la Concorde: The French Naval Ministry and the Hôtel de Crillon.
The Obelisk once stood at the entrance to the Luxor Temple in Egypt.
