Hôtel de Ville de Paris
This splendid neo-Renaissance-style building is just minutes from the Seine and right in the heart of the capital. In 1260, Louis IX decided to endow Paris with the means of organizing its own affairs. Situated in Place de Grève (grève meaning 'strike' the square gets its name from discontented workers who often demonstrated here!), the building was used as the seat of government during the French Revolution, when a guillotine stood imposingly in front of its windows. Burnt to the ground during a working-class uprising in 1871, it was rebuilt 11 years later and became the current Town Hall. Crystal chandeliers, beautiful paintings and vast function rooms are all part of its sumptuous interior.
You can feel the turbulent past just standing in the front of the Hotel de Ville. So much history! I made many trips on the Metro to this part of Paris during my two week stay. There was something drawing me to this area in particular.
I hope I will be able to go back to Paris again very soon; there are many beautiful parts of the city I still need to explore.
I thought that this place was gorgeous. Paris was the first place I have been out of Canada and it was just great to see the history of France. I'm still a teenager but this stuff was just glorious. I would definately want to go again! It was beautiful!
