Overview

A monumental project, the plaza and the buildings dubbed Les Colonnes (The Columns) were created by Spanish architect and city planner Ricardo Bofill. The Columns were inspired by classical Mediterranean architecture and the baroque period. The Greek-temple style colonnade blends with the futuristic mirrored-glass facades that overlook the gardens. A fountain - a slanted disk over which water flows - reigns over the plaza. A pity that it's often not working. For more information regarding this place, call +33 8 3668 3112.
