Unique in Paris, the two columns of the "Barrière du Trône" are on the edge of the 11th and 12th arrondissements, marking the entry of the "cours de Vincennes" to the east and the "Place de la Nation" to the west. Designed by Claude Nicolas Ledoux, classified as historical monuments, 28m high, they are topped by two statues of Philippe Auguste and St. Louis.
Near the Buttes Chaumont is the Bergeyre mound, with his quiet neighborhood and colorful houses surrounded by greenery. A charming place that also offers a great westward view over Montmartre, with the Sacré-Cœur and the Square Louise Michel.
We distinguish on this photo, the Orsay museum, the Opera Garnier and the dome of Les Invalides, with in background, the Paris suburb.
The auditorium of the Opera Garnier has a magnificent ceiling painted by Marc Chagall in 1964, and a gloss of an impressive size. This painting represents the great works of the greatest composers such as Berlioz, Wagner, Tchaïkovsky, Bizet or Beethoven.
On the "Place de la Concorde", the obelisk surrounded by two magnificent fountains by Jacques Hittorff, was erected on the 25 October 1836 during the reign of Louis-Philippe Ier.
