AHLEM Champ de Mars is named after a large public greenspace in the seventh arrondissement of Paris and located just in front of the Eiffel Tower. Traditionally, the Champ de Mars was used for gardening, and plots were allocated to citizens to grow fruits, vegetables, and flowers to sell at the market. In the late 1700s the École Militaire was constructed – a complex of buildings containing a number of military facilities. The grounds were subsequently used as the marching grounds of the French military. It is fitting that the area was named to pay tribute to the Roman god of war.
