France. Paris. View on Place Vendôme and the Bulgari jeweller's shop. The Place Vendôme is a square in the 1st arrondissement. Its regular architecture by Jules Hardouin-Mansart and pedimented screens canted across the corners give the rectangular Place Vendôme the aspect of an octagon. The Place Vendôme Column at the centre was erected by Napoleon to commemorate the battle of Austerlitz. 20.05.09  © 2009 Didier Ruef
