The massive, Haussemannian-facade building was registered as a Historic Monument in 1975 thanks to its beautiful exterior and art deco cupola. Though it's mostly known for its large collection of French and international luxury brands—300 of which are exclusively sold at the store—Printemps also has an impressive food hall featuring some of the finest edible products in France. The modern department store invites shoppers up to the panoramic terrace for unobstructed Paris views.
