Christmas at the Galeries Lafayette

Even though I don’t go to the Galeries Lafayette very often, (I much prefer the Bon Marché on the Left Bank), I couldn’t resist popping in to have a look at their Christmas tree which is getting quite a lot of attention at the moment. It’s hanging upside down in the spectacular art nouveau glass dome in the centre of the building.

The dome was inaugurated in 1912 and is incredibly beautiful with or without the Christmas tree. The Galeries Lafayette is a luxury department store selling all the major brands and more, and has a gourmet food section on the other side of the boulevard which is also well worth a visit. But be warned, they receive over 100 000 visitors a day!
