Place Vendome, Paris
Categories: Landmarks, Tourist Spots
Place Vendome is the centerpiece of a magnificent eight-sided square, first laid out in 1699 to show off an equestrian statue of Louis XIV. The statue was removed amid revolutionary fervor in 1792, and replaced in 1806 with the Colonne de la Grande Armée. This was modeled on Trajan's column in Rome, and decorated with Napoleon's military exploits. The present column is a replica, however, as the original was pulled down during the 1871 Paris Commune. This square represents the best of well-heeled Paris, and is home to an abundance of exclusive boutiques, jewelers, and fashion labels, including Cartier, Boucheron, Trussardi, van Cleef & Arpels, along with several banks, the French Ministry of Justice, and the Ritz Hotel.
