Photographer's Note

Le grand palais can be found near the end of the Champs Elysees, in front of the Alexander III bridge on the other side of the Invalides.

The restauration of this architectural masterpiece was started in 2001 and has just opened back one month ago.

What was done:
- change 3400 wood foundation by 12m columns of concrete
- repair ceiling :
* 8500 tons of steel (the eiffel tower is only 8000 tons)
* clean the glasses (15000 mイ)

This is really an impressive architecture, and the picture is only central dome of it.
