One of my favorite parts of the Jardin du Luxembourg was the Medici Fountain. This fountain was built in 1630 by Marie de’ Medici, King Henry IV’s widow and the regent of King Louis XIII of France. Tomasso Francini, a Florentine fountain maker, designed it. Unfortunately the fountain was not maintained and had seen better days when Napoleon ordered that it be restored. In 1864-1866 the fountain was relocated to its present site. Also, sculptures of Polyphemus surprising two lovers, Acis and Galatea, were added.
I found this section of the gardens peaceful and the sculptures blew me away. I hope you enjoy. And if you are in the area, they are worth seeking out.
