Paris is a loveable city which many of us would love to visit at least once in a lifetime. Worldly known as the ‘City of Love and Romance’, Paris offers a lot not only to its residents but the visitors as well. But why is Paris so famously referred to as the city of Love and Romance?

Well, one of the reasons is ‘Coeur de Paris’ – The Most Recent Symbol of Love.

While the world was busy buying and exchanging Valentine gifts, the Parisians were receiving a dazzling heart-shaped sculpture.

(Coeur de Paris) Heart of Paris as named, can be used as a perfect illustration to tell our loved ones how much “our hearts literally for them”. Covered with LEDs and ceramic, the creation of Portuguese artist Joana Vasconcelos contains lights which turn on and off to the rhythm of a heartbeat.

The sculpture which was inaugurated by the mayor for culture Christophe Girard, on the night of this year’s Valentine’s Day comprises of 4000 tiles, produced and painted manually at the Viúva Lamego in Lisbon. Artist Vasconcelos was chosen by a group of residents on the 18th arrondissement of Paris to create the sculpture.

Alias ‘You Spin My Heart Right Round’, Heart of Paris will serve as a beam of hope to its residents due to its phenomenal nature. The sculpture is installed at the Porte de Clingacourt (XVII).
