I was always very impressed by the geometric harmony of this square.

The square was constructed in the 18th century to commemorate the armies of Louis XIV, but only after Napoleon, was added the central column, modelled after Trajan's column in Rome, to commemorate the victory in Austerlitz.

This is one of the places that I can't describe - we must be there to feel the balance, the proportions, the size. Wonderful!
