Place Charles De Gaulle,Paris

The Place Charles de Gaulle,  historically known as the Place de l'Étoile , is a large road junction in Paris, France, the meeting point of twelve straight avenues (hence its historic name, which translates as "Square of the Star") including the Champs-Élysées. It was renamed in 1970 following the death of General and President Charles de Gaulle. It is still often referred to by its original name, and the nearby metro station retains the designation Charles de Gaulle – Étoile.
Thanks to Erna for this romantic view.
