We love Place Royale

Construction of the Place Royale took from 1773 to 1780, using the design of French architect Barnabé Guimard. The square is almost an exact replica of the Place Royale in Reims.151

    I am Cedric, discoverer of things that would go unnoticed in the streets of Paris, historic haven of fashionistas and city of lights ('lights' as in 'enlightenment', not street lights).
    But seriously: I'm an expat from Luxembourg (the country, not the garden), living in the center of Paris (hence 'Paris 2nd arrondissement'), and currenlty studying architectural history...
