The Palace of Legion and Honor, San Francisco

Situated on the hill overlooking the Bay, is the Palace of Legion and Honor.  In fact, the words "Honneur et Patrie" were inscribed in the wall on the building.  There was the famous statue by Rodin (the Thinker) and a mini Louvre like pyramid... To top it off was a beautiful resemblance of an Arc... one similar to what we have here in France... A nice tribute, I'd say... and a very popular place to hold a wedding... See the official website of the Palace of Legion and Honor for more info.
