  • No need to be very knowledgeable so that the architecture of the building evokes a Roman temple, and was therefore built under the 1st Empire, Napoleon having largely inspired the Roman Empire. She echoes her little sister in front, the Church of the Madeleine, style quite similar. If we can regularly see images of the Interior through the media when they retransmit the sessions of the National Assembly or when they interview policies, nothing will ever be worth a visit to the premises. The rooms are absolutely exceptional, an ode to art, and the library is just spectacular.

  • A killing, excuse my Frank speaking but frankly what more to say. An exceptional location level architecture, painting, decoration. A beautiful collection of the bust of Marianne to discover. Certainly you have to show white paws at the entrance but it's really your shot and I think it's a visit to do once in his life.
