Photo and caption by Konstantine

Paris’s historic arcades referred to as passages or galleries were constructed during the 18th and 19th centuries. These amazing structures manifest diverse architectural themes that reflect the many eras of European History from the Classical, Medieval, and Renaissance periods that inspired European civilisation. Roman Arches, Grecian columns, Byzantine Mosaic floors and domed roofs, Germanic intricately designed Cast Iron Gates and antique Clocks coupled with Italian and French inspired flair for cafes, restaurants and artisan shops manifests something truly beautiful and extraordinary.

Location: Melbourne, Victoria, Australia
