Hotel de Ville - City Hall, Paris: 61 reviews and 116 photos


The Hotel de Ville is French for City Hall. This magnificent building was once the headquarters of the Parisian Municipal Offices. It now houses the Mayors Office. Constructed at the height of the middle ages in the 12th Century (1300s), it sits on a square that was once the public execution grounds. The building was renamed in 1830, a title which it retains to this day. A fire in the middle of the 19th Century destroyed a large portion of the building. As a result, it was rebuilt in the 1870s. Today, one can see childrens amusements in front of the edifice.
