The Obélisque stands on Place de la Concorde, and you can catch a glimpse of the dome of Les Invalides. Place de la Madeleine has the most sought-after delicatessens in Paris: Hédiard, the Maison de la Truffe, and Fauchon.
A consumer location for the bourgeois classes, the district is a historical extension of the monarchical Paris that surrounds the Louvre. It is no coincidence that Longchamp, L'Oréal, and Hermès all have stores on Rue du Faubourg Saint-Honoré. Chanel is also based on Rue Royale, together with other big fashion names.
