Grand Palais

Grand Palais is the domed shape building in the distance

Today I was on the go again! I covered a lot of ground. I only have a short time left here so I am trying to make the most of it. The time has gone by so quickly! I saw so many interesting things today that it is difficult to know what to start talking about first. = )

The Grand Palais was actually designed for the World Fair of 1900.  It is considered “a jewel” of the Art Nouveau style.  It has an interesting blend of glass, stone and steel. It is recognized for its Nave, which is more than 200 meters long and covered with an immense glass roof.  The building is stunning to look at from the outside and inside!
