The Louvre is of course the famous museum in Paris, which houses on the the finest collections of artwork in the world. In 1989 a new entrance to the building was built, in the form of an ultra-modern glass and steel pyramid, which pierces the stone flagged courtyard in front of the classical palace building that makes up the main galleries. I couldn't actually find a royalty-free photograph of the Louvre which doesn't show the pyramid in front of it, so I had to cunningly hide it behind Ginny in the last panel.

The Notre Dame photo is courtesy of Claudia Meyer, St Germain en Laye, France. The Louvre photo is by Richard Plant, Ronda, Spain.
