Place de la Concorde
The Place de la Concorde sits at the eastern end of the Champs-Elysees, and is the largest public square in Paris at over twenty acres. Despite the beauty of this space, it has seen some bloody moments in its past, as this is where King Louis XVI was executed via guillotine.
The Place de la Concorde takes the shape of an octagon, with a statue in each corner that represents a French city. There is also a pair of fountains and a giant Egyptian obelisk in the center, from the reign of Ramses II.
