It is very beautiful, Mary. And looks to offer a plethora of photographic opportunities!

Nice to hear from you. Hope that you're back safe and sound and doing well!

Thanks, Jacob--the place is GREAT!

Hi Mary...thanks for your kind words on Paree!

I really don't know why VP hates the place...it could have something to do with the fact that it was where people were jailed while waiting execution. This is where Marie Antoinette awaited her beheading...it has a very unsavory history!

Mary Stebbins Taitt said...

I wondered if that was why.

Hard to hate a building for things that happened inside it, though?

Ciao Mary, the conservatory is located in a beautiful environment!
Have a good week end!

P.S. the rest of the body of the statue of Constantine has never been found

What a marvelous structure. Looks very "Sci-fi" like.

Thank you both!

but then, how did they know it was Constantine? (I probably should reread your post!)
