Architecture and the Colonne Vendôme (Vendôme Column)

The designs for Place Vendôme were drawn up by Jules Hardouin-Mansart, the first architect of the Roi Soleil (Sun King) Louis XIV.  Surrounded by magnificent facades, most of which are listed as historic Paris monuments, Place Vendôme was completed in 1810 with the construction of the impressive Colonne Vendôme, a monument built in honor of Napoleon Bonaparte’s armies.
