The Tuileries Garden was designed in 1664 at the request of the “Sun King” Louis XIV, and is closely associated with the French royal family, as well as the anti-monarchist revolution of 1789.

The flame will tour 400 French cities and dozens of tourist attractions during a 12,000-kilometre journey on the mainland and French overseas territories in the Caribbean, Indian Ocean and Pacific Ocean.
