We could have spent our whole trip just looking at architecture in Paris. Here’s a sampling of the beautiful buildings we found.
A belfry with a gold zig-zag design and a floral ornament on top.
I think there must be some very chic penthouse apartments in these corner tower rooms.
I’m sure there’s an official architect’s term for this but I’m calling it a modified mansard roof.
The Grand Palais had some lovely buildings. Next time we’ll explore the interiors.
I loved this dome of the Huissiers-Audienciers du Tribunal de Commerce de la Seine (Ushers of the Commercial Court of the Seine).
I believe these two statues were atop Notre Dame.
Had a cool Viking ship weathervane.
The Cour de Cassation, the French Supreme Court, is on Quai de l’Horloge and faces the Seine.
I tried to find a specific term for the towers but could only find “Cone-shaped Roof – A roof shaped like a cone” so I’m going with that.
We found this cupola topped with a weathervane on the roof of the Louvre.
The Paris Opera must be beautiful all lit up at night.
I’ll have a couple more posts on Paris then it’s off to London!
