Parc de Sceaux

The Parc de Sceaux is a large park located south of Paris. It used to belong to Jean-Baptiste Colbert, who served as Minister of Finances of France under King Louis XIV. The park has a castle (Château de Sceaux), built in the 19th century, and an expansive garden designed by André Le Nôtre.
