"Opera Garnier" Palais Garnier Tip by Diana75
Palais Garnier, Paris: 139 reviews and 308 photos
Unfortunately I haven't got the chance (I'd better say the time) to visit the Opera inside or to see a performance, but only seeing the building from outside is impressive enough to make an idea about how beautiful it is.
Taking the name from the unknown architect who won the contest for the new Opera project, Opera Garnier was inaugurated in 1875.
Its main facade, looking over Place d'Opera, is beautifully adorned with tall statues, while the interior is decorated with different colors of marble (white, red, blue, pink) from different parts of the country.
