  • At the beginning of May 2019 the Place de la Nation is in the middle of work, at their end this summer? we are promised vast pedestrian spaces, a large park in the heart of the square, a new circular playful space, extensive green spaces ... This is hardly the time to go there now. The magnificent monumental bronze ensemble The Triumph of the Republic by Jules Dalou is inaccessible. The construction site is noisy... We are entitled to "Thank you for your patience" You can make a small detour avenue and then Dorian Street to see the Art Nouveau buildings of the architect Jean Falp of the early twentieth century if you continue on Rue Pierre Bourdon by taking the passage Saint Charles a new building Boulle School offers surprising contemporary architecture

  • Reaching nearly thirty meters in height, we see them from afar, they mark and adorm beautifully the beginning of the Avenue of the throne, bordered on both sides of a beautiful alley of trees. They are absolutely beautiful and are sufficient to beautify the place de la nation, formerly place du throne. I who initially thought it was dated from the 2nd Empire, that nenni, their history is much earlier and dates back to the day before the revolution. If you are careful, you will see that the base of these two columns is cross-shaped. At the top of one, we have a statue of St. Louis, and at the top of the other, a statue of Philip Augustus, two very great sovereigns who marked the history of France forever. However, these 2 statues have also taken on a completely different meaning with time, since one symbolizes justice and peace (I would say St. Louis), the other, abundance and victory for Philip Augustus. They are well anchored to the ground and nothing seems to be able to ever harm them, after already 250 years watching the parades of cars go to their feet. Small original detail, each of them belongs to a very different borough. That said, 3 boroughs meet in the Centre of place de l'Etoile and therefore share the triumphal arch.
