The beautiful Petit Palais is a treasure trove of incredible wrought iron created by the building's architect designer Charles Girault himself. The entrance gates are stunning and the banisters, peristyles, balconies and windows exhibit a certain elegance.

We visited the courtyard here and will come again as there is much more to discover.

(I have been on the road since last Thursday, not in Paris, and I am loading these photos from my laptop, untouched. Please accept them naked as they came right out of the camera. Also, please forgive my lack of accent marks as I am stumped on my baby computer)
