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. 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 Battle of Austerlitz. At the top of this bronze centre-piece sits a statue of the emperor himself. It was made by melting down 1200 canons taken from Russian and Austrian armies. 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 jewellers, 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 now Place Vendôme. You will be able to admire this superb square at the beginning of the guided trip Pariscityvision offers. Enjoy the experience by day even by night, lit up by the lights of Paris.
