Built in the XVII century, La Place Vendôme is one of Paris's best known squares, and arguably one of the most luxurious in the world. It's located North of the Tuileries garden, close to the Garnier Opera house, and to the East of the Madeleine church. This square's construction was decided by Louis XIV's on a whim and designed by Jules Hardouin. The King Soleil wanted a deluxe space in which grand royal events could take place, and he was also an admirer of Mansart's architecture. Originally named 'Place Louis Le Grand', it used to house a statue of the king on horseback. As a symbol of the monarchy, the statue was destroyed during the revolution. In 1810 at the very same place, Napoleon erected the Vendôme column - inspired by Trajan's Column in Rome - to commemorate the victory of the Battle of Austerlitz. At the top of this bronze center-piece sits a statue of the emperor himself. It was made by melting down 1200 canons taken from Russian and Austrian armies. It was at that time a controversial monument. Courbet, a famous French painter-sculptor played a key role in the reconstruction of the column after being condemned for its destruction. L'Hôtel de Bourvallais, at 13 Place Vendôme, houses the ministry of Justice. The building is surrounded by unique hotels decorated with historic monuments, renowned jewelers, and the world famous Ritz hotel. The iconic Rue de la Paix, street which leads directly to the Opera house, was constructed under the first empire, tearing through the Capucine Convent which took up half of what is today the prestigious Place Vendôme. Site of multiple jewelry and art, Place Vendôme, in one of the famous places to visit in the French capital city.
