The Place Vendôme; neoclassical architecture
Known worldwide for its magnificent neoclassical architecture, the Place Vendôme is situated in the 1st arrondissement of Paris. Built at the very end of the 17th century, at its centre stands the Vendôme Column, completed in 1810. The regular and uniform facades of the buildings lining the paved square were erected before the buildings themselves. These rows of 3-storey mansions with Corinthian pilasters form a rectangular square with pedimented screens canted across the corners.
