Barcelona, a photo a day

Royal transports…


Let us stay in Paris a little longer. Paris has one of the world’s oldest metro network. And the entrances of most metro stations are in a lovely art deco style. But not this one! This one is right royal, it even wears a crown! Normal, it is the Palais Royal station, the royal palace.
Thanks to my friend VP, from Livorno in Italia, I can tell you now, hours after posting this, that it is called the Kiosque des noctambules, by Jean-Michel Othoniel. It was created in 2000, and is made of aluminium spheres and Murano glass. The Murano glass comes from the famous Salviati workshop.
