Paris Military School, Paris

4.3
Paris Military School is a vast complex of buildings housing various military training facilities founded by Louis XV in 1750 to create an academic college for cadet officers from poor families. Not only can you appreciate the historical significance of this site, which produced countless great military leaders, but the statuesque, sprawling architecture is quite impressive as well.

As you explore this site, keep in mind that Napolean Bonaparte walked the same hallways, as he was accepted in 1784 and completed the two-year program in one year. To visit Paris Military School and other attractions in Paris, use our Paris trip planner.

During this time it is possible to build the longest in the world, 55 km long, sea Bridge to finish... As the inhabitants of one Celestial country did...
