176 meters (577 feet) long with three entrances, Galerie Vivienne is one of the most emblematic passageways of the Capital. Built in 1823 by architect Jean Delannoy, it was inaugurated in 1826. In a neo-classic style, it is made of mosaics and sculptures covered by a glass roof. It is divided in three galleries, and the main one ends at a rotunda covered by a hemispherical glass dome. Nowadays, restaurants, tea rooms, and fashion stores share this space as well as a shop of the famous designer Jean-Paul Gaultier. Many events take place here, detailed program is listed on its website.
