Paris is a city filled with history and amazing architecture.
Today is a traveling day for me, but I wanted to share a Thursday Door.
Place de la Concorde.
This door is from Place de la Concorde.
Place de la Concorde is one of the major public squares in Paris. It is located in the city’s, 8th arrondissement, at the eastern end of the Champs-Élysées.
It was the site of many notable public executions during the French Revolution.
Our hotel was within a short walking distance of Place de la Concorde, which I shared in my A Corner of Paris post.
I also shared some evening views in the square in this post.
At each of the eight angles of the octagonal Place de la Concorde is a statue representing a French city.
I chose to capture the sculpture by Pierre Petitot, representing the city of Lyon.
My choice was not because of the city, but because Lyon is my maiden name.
City of Lyon.
However, Lyon is a two-thousand-year-old city situated at the junction of the Rhône and Saône rivers.
It is the third largest city in France, after Paris and Marseilles.
Have you ever traveled to Lyon, France?
Let your light shine!
