Place de la Concord Paris

AIRVŪZ STAFF NOTE :

Here's an awesome aerial view of one of the great sights of Paris, compliments of sphereview. It's the Place de la Concord, the largest public square in the French capital.  It is situated at the eastern end of the Champs-Élysées, in the eighth arrondissement.  During the French Revolution, it went under another name: the Place de la Révolution.  It was here that King Louis XVI was executed by guillotine in January, 1793, and where his widow Marie Antoinette met the same fate nine months later.
