If one reads the history of the column and studies its facade, one can appreciate what it means. Otherwise the Place Vendome is just an oblong round-about where one can spend one's yearly salary in 15 minutes at any of the big-name jewelry stores. It's a nice place to go through on the way to somewhere else.

Column from the Napoleon era in the middle of Place Vendome. A cold and rich part of town, full of jewelry stores. At least it is no longer just a car park.

The Vendôme Column is a Parisian monument in the center of the square of the same name in the I st district of Paris . It was erected by Napoleon to commemorate the Battle of Austerlitz and has a statue of him on top. The square is beautiful and has many shops and hotels. A great meeting spot!

This bronze column was erected to commemorate the victory at Austerlitz and capped with a statue of Napoleon. The column itself is covered with the bronze of 1200 guns captured from the Austrian army, and decorated with bas-relief scenes of battle. The base is an inscribe block made of granite.
