Sceaux Good 2

These cascades are the most striking water feature at Sceaux Park in Paris. They have a bit of a chequered history – originally built in the 17th century, destroyed during the French Revolution, and then rebuilt in the 1930s.

At the top you can see some grotesque faces which were created by the great sculptor Rodin for the Universal Expo in 1878, and later relocated to Sceaux.
