The Moulin de la Galette...


The Moulin de la Galette is a windmill situated near the top of the district of Montmartre in Paris, France. The area has been depicted by artists such as Pierre-Auguste Renoir, Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec, Ramon Casas, Vincent van Gogh, and Pablo Picasso. The windmill has been classified as a monument since 1939.

I thought this windmill looked really cute, not knowing, until I arrived home and read up on it, that it was famous...!!
