Description

An exterior view of the Palais Garnier's Pavillon de l'Empereur, located on the west side of the building. A ramp wraps around the side semi-circular building, which leads to the entryway. The doorway is framed by caryatids, each raising up a branch. A dome surmounts the Pavillon. Statues adorn the Palais Garnier’s roof. A lamppost appears along the right hand side of the image.
