Place Vendôme, commissioned by King Louis XIV, is defined by its majestic proportions and a strong sense of symmetry, as well as by its octagonal shape, unique in the world. It is also one of the most emblematic squares of French 17th century architecture. Following his victory at Austerlitz at the beginning of the 19th century, Napoleon enriched the square by erecting the Vendôme Column, made using bronze from cannons left behind by the Austrians after the battle.
