The grandiose Place Vendôme perfectly illustrates the classic architecture such as it existed under Louis XIV and Louis XV. Octagonal in shape, the designs were drawn up by Jules Hardouin-Mansart, the architect of the Château de Versailles.
Initially at its centre it had a statue of King Louis XIV which was beheaded during the Revolution and some years later (in 1804) was replaced by a Roman-inspired column, with a statue of Napoleon erected on its summit.
This magnificent square remains, even today, a symbol of grandeur which is home to many luxury jewellery shops and grand hotels.
