Paris, France – This summer, the Louvre is challenging its guests to unlock the ‘Secret of Arcadia,’ a new game activity in the open environment of the Louvre’s magnificent setting. The game is a fun and captivating investigation, taking place from July 10 to August 29, offering an unexpected revelation of the Tuileries Garden.
For centuries, the Tuileries Garden has embodied the harmony of the city. It is a bridge between worlds, with a secret rooted in an ancient tradition, that of the perfect balance between nature and civilization. It is a tradition born in Arcadia, a small region of ancient Greece, revered by Socrates, as well as many nature-loving artists after him. Since time immemorial, this ancient tradition has been perpetuated in parks and gardens, places where nature and culture merge.
Designed by the L’Equipe agency, in close collaboration with the gardeners of the Tuileries, ‘Secret d’Arcadie’ invites you to open your eyes to the garden thanks to intricate puzzles of observation, reflection and logic, in a journey lasting about 1 hour and 15 minutes. The gardeners of the Tuileries have designed a subtle journey that will reveal the Secret of Arcadia to those who accept the challenge. Combining poetry, awareness of biodiversity and the heritage of the garden, the game will fascinate novices and experienced players alike through its various puzzles.
‘Secret d’Arcadie’ aims to be an enchanted interlude where the observation of the smallest details of the environment is at the center of the reflection and the exchanges between the members of the team: only eight maps, a paper plan and a pencil are necessary to play.
