"Galeries Lafayette" Galeries Lafayette Tip by tiabunna
Galeries Lafayette, Paris: 20 reviews and 34 photos
Slowly but surely, my work for this VT page (oh the sacrifices, would I ever admit I was enjoying myself?) meant that I filled my collection of camera cards and the time came to buy another. I headed for the nearest large store, the Galeries Lafayette, and the price I paid seemed very reasonable compared to prices at home. Finding the photographic department took some effort (from memory on the 7th floor) and I had to ask directions from several helpful staff members.
What impressed me most, however, was the building. I have since read that it is heritage listed, but the large atrium through the centre of it, surmounted by a glass and steel dome, is quite stunning. That?s it in the photo. It apparently dates from 1912, as does an Art Nouveau staircase.
Address: 40 Bvde Haussmann, 9th Arr.
