The Gate

Parc Monceau, established in 1769, in the 8ème is a beautiful place, and one that I think gets overlooked by most visitors to Paris. The gates on both sides of the parc are stunning. Today a silhouette pour toi.

Oh Virginia, will you believe I have a Pasadena photo to answer this one? I'll try to remember to post it this week.

Thank you. that makes me feel a little bit better about not being in Paris right now.

Beautiful, Virginia! You don't see ironwork like that everyday. All of the old stuff is so very beautiful!

OH! Now I must find my shot of the gate at The Conservatory Garden in Central Park ... I do believe, if memory isnt totally kaput, its a clone

I've got one of the Huntington...Gate is of the same period.

Petrea said...

That's what I was thinking of, Hiker.

I don't think most people know Parc Monceau either. In fact it's a very photogenic.

You're right about the visitors overlooking the parc, but the locals are there almost every day.

Parc Monceau is such a beautiful place in Paris & what makes it more so, is that it is not over-run with turists.
I too am a turist to Paris on many occassions, but I love to get aways from the usual tourist destinations....it's amazing what you can find....as we did with Parc Monceau!!

Regards, Linda

p.s...can't wait to teturn!
