Grand Palais, the really great palace!


Le Grand Palais, a magnificent building located off the Champs Elysées that was built for the Universal Exposition of 1900 (and renovated between 1993 and 2007) is currently sheltering a huge amusement park for the Christmas period (until January 5th). I love this building, especially its inside staircases that I photographed here from above. Have a great pre Christmas Sunday last minute shopping if you celebrate it!

  2. Now there's an angle. I love this building. I go to exhibitions there just to see the building itself.

  6. Been so busy with Christmas preparations (not to mention work!) that I've been neglecting PDP.
    So I'm playing catch-up—you've had some great shots lately (especially loved the Pont de Bercy).
    Today's shot made me a bit dizzy though. :~}
