Hotel de Ville - City Hall, Paris: 61 reviews and 116 photos
The town hall always was the centre of the Parisian city history.
The town hall of Paris is placed on a big place that was used for public purposes of the capital more than five centuries.
The new building is a copy of the renaissance construction that stood earlier on this place.
The aged edifice was destroyed in a fire in the year 1871.
The present-day construction got the bearings by the former construction.
The design of the present building comes from the architects Deperthes and Ballu and was accomplished in 1882.
The construction is impressive and unique with its pyramidal increased pavilions with cupola and its 136 stone figures, positioned on all four facades of the palace.
The palace turned in the course of the times, into the arena of important historical events.
