Abstract: 

Planck is an ESA satellite aimed at the observation of the Cosmic Microwave Background. The Planck collaboration has recently published its last legacy release. In this talk I will shortly review the main Planck results and their robustness, highlight some of the curious features present in the data and the Planck point of view on tensions with a few other astrophysical probes, notably with the Hubble constant measurements from local distance measurements.
