The Place de la Concorde is one of the major public squares in Paris, France. Measuring 7.6 ha in area, it is the largest square in the French capital. It is located in the city's eighth arrondissement, at the eastern end of the Champs-Élysées.
It was the site of many notable public executions, including the executions of King Louis XVI and Marie Antoinette in the course of the French Revolution, during which the square was temporarily renamed Place de la Révolution. (Wikipedia)
