Place du Trocadéro - 75016 Paris
Trocadéro - Passy
The ‘Troca’ balcony is a unique vantage point from which to see the Eiffel Tower, which stands opposite, on the other side of the River Seine. Between the curved wings of the imposing Palais de Chaillot - emblematic of the thirties, the terraces and gardens gently slope down to the river and are lined with Caucasian walnut trees and hazel trees, and decorated with gilded bronze statues. Skaters zigzag alongside the jets of water from the 20 water canon in the big ornamental pond, under the gaze of Apollo and Hercules, sculpted onto the pediment of the pavilions.
