The French Romanesque-style Sacred Heart of Jesus Catholic Church in Downtown Atlanta was built in 1897:

I think Buenos Aires is the more french influenced city of the world, some areas are very close to the old Paris.

Some pictures of my city.

Thanks for sharing these stunning photos of Buenos Aires !

I fully agree with you about your city being the most French-influenced city in the world !!

You could even show me a pic of some of the "second Empire/Belle Époque" buildings and/or streets of Buenos Aires and telling me they are Parisian ones... And I'd certainly believe this is true !

I said some buildings/streets because apparently many French-influenced buildings in Buenos Aires are... almost the same than we have in Paris...except the number of floors (yours are much, much taller in many cases)

Yes parcdesprinces, I agree with you, Bueno Aires is strong influenced boy a lot of styles, but the French style is one of the most common in the city and one of the most beautiful. I love french architecture, I think it's the most elegant and beautiful style of all times.

Here some more photos of Buenos Aires, enjoy it.

Actually I'm not chauvinist but we can consider the French late XIXth century architecture as one of most astonishing. It influenced the world particularly with the Haussman plan in the 1860's, making Paris a brilliant and modern city with his endless avenues, his beautiful plazas and palaces. Even if the interested for french architecture goes back to classical architecture with Versailles.

But the British Neogothical archiecture, the Belgian-Catalan New art and the Austrian-German art deco have deeply influenced architecture too.
