  • This façade of the Hotel Particulier says, from Sir Isaac de laffemas (1587-1657), Lieutenant at the Châtelet, seat of the police, spy and executor of bass task of Richelieu, is classified historical monument, since 1928. This hotel is located in front of the charming Saint Julien Le Paun Church at no. 14 on the street and close to the René Viviani square. Indeed, the monumental door in carved wood, is topped by a half-moon carved pediment. It represents the allegory of "justice" in lying woman, between branches of olive tree and holding the famous balance. Right next to it, a Cherub holds an hourglass, which seems to say that justice has time. It depends on what and for whom!! The rest of the building is of a Renaissance style revisited, without it being able to be visited. This makes the interest of this site limited. Victor Hugo, who had to endure the outrages of censorship and espionage of power, said of him "in all the tasks of high and low police, often rather messy, which he accomplishes for the Cardinal, he was always supported by a sincere devotion to the State". Note that there is often confusion with another Hotel de Laffemas, located in place des Vosges at n ° 22. He made the corner with the rue du Pas de la Mule, in the 4th arrondissement

  • This building was built at the beginning of 1600 by Isaac de Laffemas, French lawyer and politician. You can't visit this Palace inside but deserves a brief moment to stop his decidedly stately door adorned with fine carvings.
