The Esplanade des Invalides is a large green space extending from the majestic Hôtel des Invalides in the 7th arrondissement of Paris.
The esplanade is linked to the Grand Palais on the right bank of the Seine via an elegant bridge, the Pont Alexandre III. Surrounded by spectacular gardens, the Hôtel des Invalides was built in 1687 under Louis XIV as a military hospital and a retirement home for war veterans. Today, the world-famous complex contains museums and monuments linked to France’s military history, as well as Napoléon Bonaparte’s tomb. The Esplanade des Invalides runs north to south, with rows of trees along its western and eastern sides.

This large open space in the heart of the capital has become a popular leisure destination for locals and tourists to exercise, play music or go for a walk. The Esplanade des Invalides will provide an exceptional backdrop to the Olympic and Paralympic archery events right at the heart of an area buzzing with Games excitement – just a stone’s throw away from competition venues such as the Grand Palais, the Champs Élysées, La Concorde, the Eiffel Tower stadium, the Champ-de-Mars arena, as well as the Pont d’Iéna.
